RYAN, P; TER HAAR, M; ROCHER, A  y  GOGA, I. Intraneural lipoma of the common peroneal nerve: A case report and review of the literature. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.3, pp. 40-44. ISSN 2309-8309.

Intraneural lipomas are rare hamartomas, encompassed within the spectrum of fatty lesions associated with peripheral nerves. More commonly associated with nerves of the upper limb, there are few reports of intraneural lipomas associated with nerves of the lower limb. In these cases they are usually found around the foot and ankle, or more proximally in the upper thigh or hip. We report a case of an intraneural lipoma associated with the common peroneal nerve: the presenting features, diagnosis and subsequent management. We give a concise review of fatty lesions associated with peripheral nerves, and in particular, intraneural lipomas.

Palabras clave : lipoma; intraneural lipoma; common peroneal; compression neuropathy; fibrolipoma.
