Normal palmaris longus lies deep to the lesion. The lesion is heterogeneously hypoechoic with few linear echogenic foci without capsule/calcification/ cystic changes/acoustic enhancement/ acoustic shadow/ compressibility/ vascularity.
The perilesional subcutaneous fat is echogenic mildly increased vascularity.
