Case Report
A 52 year-old lady visited our out patient clinic due to localized pain of her right index without previous traumatic history. A 0.8x0.8 cm fresh colored elastic tender nodule was noted on her pulp of her right index (Fig.1). The pain was not radiating in character and was not associated with sensory abnormality. The flexion and extension of her index were not impaired. We excised the nodule under local anesthesia. The histopathology of the excised nodule was shown in figure. 2. The pain is relieved totally and no local recurrence was noted after follow-up for 3 months.
