Ganglion cysts typically originate from connective tissue such as joint capsules and tendon sheaths, and less commonly within bone.
Intra-articular ganglion cyst of the knee was first reported by Caan (2) in 1924, who incidentally found a ganglion cyst of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) at autopsy.
Immunohistochemical analysis of neurofilament (Figure 1C), neuron-specific enolase (NSE) (Figure 1D), glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) (1D inset) and S100 (Figure 1E) showed a positive reaction in the cytoplasm of ganglion cells, extending to their cellular processes.
Following an optic nerve injury, rats that were treated with exosomes lost a third of their retinal ganglion cells, compared to a 90% loss among untreated rats.
I've been told that ganglion cysts often recur, and I am very troubled by the thought that I may not be able to run consistently again, or for long distances.
The death of retinal ganglion cells leads to vision loss in glaucoma and other optic neuropathies.
Thus, this case was diagnosed as a peroneal intraneural ganglion, and the epithelium was dissected carefully.
Peripheral neuropathies caused by ganglion cysts are quite rare, especially in the lower extremities.

In this study, NAA/Cre was significantly decreased, while Cho/Cre was significantly increased in the dominant basal ganglion and the cerebellum (compared with healthy basal ganglia and cerebellum), suggesting the occurrence of neuron death and glial cell proliferation as sequelae of neuroinflammation.
