INTRODUCTION: Compression of the brachial plexus causing neurogenic symptoms is involved in the majority of cases referred to vascular surgeons for consideration of treatment of thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). The causative factor of the compression can be difficult to diagnose with multiple pathologies implicated.
CASE REPORT: We present two rare cases of supraclavicular lipomata causing compression of the neurovascular structures in the thoracic outlet. The only 6 other cases of brachial plexus lipomata were described to our knowledge in the literature worldwide.
CONCLUSION: We highlight that there are a small number of neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (N-TOS) cases where the causative pathology can be successfully managed by surgery with expectation of a good recovery.
