          Abstract

          We present the results of a prospective randomized trial comparing the treatment of ganglia by aspiration under local anaesthetic and either instillation of steroid alone or with the prior use of hyaluronidase. Thirty-five patients were treated in each group and followed up for 2 years. The cure rate with the combined use of hyaluronidase and methylprednisolone was 89%, compared to 57% when treated by aspiration and instillation of methylprednisolone alone.
