Cartilage not supported by the subchondral bone changes, losing proteoglycans and glycoprotein, and water flows more freely into the evolving cyst. Remaining intact cartilage can act as a ball valve limiting egress of fluid out the bone when not weight bearing and compound the increasing hydrostatic pressure. Articular cartilage is aneural, but the underlying subchondral bone is maximally innervated by nocireceptors in the immediate subchondral bone. Macrophage-mediated local acidosis and intraosseous hypertension excite these receptors and lead to the typical deep ankle pain associated with cystic lesions.
