A strange, greenish-blue bruise appeared on a woman’s hand after she twisted it while practicing an acrobatic style of yoga. But even after ice and rest, the bruise wouldn’t subside. It turns out, that’s because it was actually a rare, slow-growing tumor.

Doctors described the woman’s odd case in a new report, published Wednesday (Feb. 8) in the journal JAMA Dermatology (opens in new tab). The patient, who is in her 30s, reported that the bruise appeared a few days after she’d twisted her left hand; she met with the doctors two years after that initial injury, and the bruise was still there.
