Palmar and finger varicosities diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging: case report
Palmar and finger varicosities are pathological dilated veins that are frequently found in clinical or imaging practice but are rarely reported in the medical literature. Currently there are no MRI descriptions of these lesions. We present the case of a 68-year-old woman who, after about 3 years of pain in the volar and dorsal side of the left hand and fingers, was admitted to our department for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the wrist and hand. MRI examination revealed venous palmar and finger varicosities. We decided to present this case report to highlight the role of MRI in the diagnosis of diseases of the hand, even in unexpected cases, and to confirm the role of MRI in the assessment of the extent of the lesions.
