A three-year-old girl presented with complaints of low-grade fever and progressive fusiform swellings of fingers for the past six months. She also had similar swellings in the toes and first metatarsal region in both the feet for three-four months. Her complaints had not responded to parenteral antibiotic therapy. The swellings were red in color but were relatively painless. The affected hand and the radiograph are shown in [Figure - 1]. Additional findings on physical examination, chest radiograph and skin test confirmed the diagnosis. Spot the diagnosis.
