Fibrolipomatous hamartomas of nerve are rare, benign, fibrofatty malformations of peripheral nerves, most commonly affecting the median nerve. Lower extremity cases are extremely rare. The authors present a very rare case of a fibrolipomatous hamartoma involving the superficial peroneal nerve, and review the literature regarding its clinical presentation and surgical management.
