Abstract

16 yrs old female present with insidious onset swelling for last 6 weeks with intermittent pain without any functional deficit. MRI with contrast revealed abnormal cystic swelling with characterstic finding of hetrogenous contrast enhancement due to haemosiderin deposition pointing towards Pigmented villonodular bursitis. After preanaesthetic clearance and informed consent, Incisional biopsy with marginal resection was done. Histopathology revealed Pigmented villonodular bursitis which is a rare entity at rare site of presentation. In our study, we have compared it with old reported cases and reviewed the literature for better understanding the pathology and recogonizing need for further investigation to understand its etiology.

Keywords: Pigmented villinodular synovitis and bursitis, Pes anserinus bursa
