Ok, I have tried to find information on these on line but keep getting some rare disease which causes these. I want to know what they are and why there would be one in my Quadrilateral space syndrome?

You should specify: subcortical cysts, of the bone?

...This is the question...

"...What exactly IS a subcortical cyst anyway?"


Cortex of a bone is the thick external layer.
Subcortical is something just under the cortex, in the spongy matrix of the bone.
Cysts may be of different nature (chronic inflammation, etc.)
