Juxtamalleolar lipoma with intermediate dorsal cutaneous nerve entrapment.

PMID:  1774645     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
From a review of the literature, it would appear that lipomas of the foot are relatively rare and that, when they do exist, they are of little clinical significance other than cosmetic appearance. The authors presented a case in which the size, location, and character of the mass predisposed the patient to entrapment syndrome of the intermediate dorsal cutaneous nerve. It is important to emphasize, however, that in these cases symptoms are related to a pressure phenomenon and are not a direct result of tumor physiology.
