  Title Ganglion cyst of the foot treated with electroacupuncture: A case report [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2013 Dec;57(4):310–315
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Objective: To present the clinical management of a ganglion cyst presenting on the dorsolateral aspect of the foot.
Clinical Features: A 45-year-old female cyclist complaining of ganglion cyst following training period.
Intervention and Outcome: Patient was treated with high-frequency electroacupuncture in four consecutive sessions over four weeks, and reported resolution of the cyst following therapeutic intervention.
Conclusions: Ganglion cysts of the foot are relatively rare connective tissue tumours with variable treatment approaches. Electroacupuncture may be a novel and non-invasive conservative approach for the treatment of ganglion cysts. Further evaluation of the efficacy of such treatment is warranted.
Objectif: présenter la gestion clinique d’un kyste ganglionnaire se manifestant sur l’aspect dorsolatéral du pied. Caractéristiques cliniques: une cycliste de 45 ans se plaint de kystes après l’entraînement. 
Intervention et résultat: la patiente a été traitée par électropuncture à haute fréquence en quatre séances consécutives sur quatre semaines. Le kyste a disparu après l’intervention thérapeutique. 
Conclusions: les kystes ganglionnaires au pied sont des tumeurs des tissus conjonctifs relativement rares nécessitant des approaches de traitment diverses. L’électropuncture peut être une nouvelle approache conservatrice non invasive pour le traitement des kystes ganglionnaires. Une évaluation plus poussée de l’efficacité d’un tel traitement s’avère nécessaire.
