Hip pain attributable to a ganglion of the psoas tendon: a common cyst in an uncommon region—the first case reported in a child


Ganglion cysts of the psoas tendon are uncommon and rarely reported in the literature. Often they remain asymptomatic and are found incidentally or can be a cause of atypical groin/hip pain. We present a rare case of ganglion cyst in a child arising from the psoas tendon, causing symptomatic hip pain, which failed non-surgical treatment and eventually successfully treated with surgical excision.
