Abstract

We report the first known example of an entirely fibrous loose body lying in the flexor tendon sheath of a finger. This was seen initially as a painless swelling in a fit young woman and was surgically excised with full restoration of function. The cause of the loose body is unknown, but it may have originated as a fibroma of the flexor tendon sheath or as a localized nodular tenosynovitis.
