Ganglion is the most common soft tissue tumor of the hand, and most of them usually arise from the scapholunate ligament, scarphotrapezial ligament, radiocarpal joint or flexor tendon sheath. However, intratendinous ganglion is very rare with unknown etiology and pathogenesis that originates within tendon. We have experienced three clinical cases of intratendinous ganglion in extensor tendons of hand. The average of patients at operation was 36 years. All patients were treated by excision of the ganglion in conjunction with tenosynovectomy followed by repair of the tendon. The length of mean follow up time was 6.7 months and all of them showed no evidence of recurrence.
