Lipomas are extremely common benign soft tissue tumors that are usually subcutaneous and asymptomatic. However, an intramuscular lipoma, occurring adjacent to the proximal radius, may easily cause paralysis of the posterior interosseous nerve because of a specific anatomical relationship of these structures in that area. In this report, we describe an unusual case of a 48-year-old-woman with a posterior interosseous nerve syndrome due to an intramuscular lipoma. The patient had good recovery after surgery and rehabilitation physiotherapy.
