Intraneural ganglion cysts have been considered a curiosity for 2 centuries. Based on a unifying articular (synovial) theory, recent evidence has provided a logical explanation for their formation and propagation. The fundamental principle is that of a joint origin and a capsular defect through which synovial fluid escapes following the articular branch, typically into the parent nerve. A stereotypical, reproducible appearance has been characterized that suggests a shared pathogenesis. In the present report the authors will provide a mechanistic explanation that can then be mathematically tested using a preliminary model created by finite element analysis.
