Benign peripheral nerve lesions of lipomatous, vascular, and chondromatous origin are very rare. Only one previous case of brachial plexus involvement by such a tumor has been reported. The authors report on their experience with peripheral nerve tumors in three patients and review the available literature on these topics. The three cases discussed include a 44-year-old woman with an intraneural lipoma of the right middle trunk, a 40-year-old woman with an intraneural hemangioma infiltrating…

Intraneural lipoma of the common peroneal nerve: A case report and review of the literature
TLDR
A case of an intraneural lipoma associated with the common peroneal nerve is reported: the presenting features, diagnosis and subsequent management are reported.
Intraneural lipomas: institutional and literature review
TLDR
Intraneural lipomas exist as two separate entities with distinct clinical implications although rare, this should be taken in account when planning surgery.
Lipofibromatous hamartoma of the digital branches of the median nerve presenting as carpal tunnel syndrome: A rare case report with review of the literature
TLDR
A case of young male diagnosed as lipofibromatous hamartoma of the median nerve involving the right index finger is presented due to its rarity.
Schwannoma of the long thoracic nerve in the left axilla: a case report
TLDR
A 23-year-old woman presented to the authors' hospital with a mass in the left axilla that was misdiagnosed as mammae erraticae that was surgically excised, while preserving the continuity of the long thoracic nerve.
Intraneural Hemangioma: Case Report of a Rare Tibial Nerve Lesion
TLDR
A three-year-old female with the inability to straighten her right knee and fullness over the right popliteal fossa for one year is presented.
Lipomas as an Extremely Rare Cause for Brachial Plexus Compression: A Case Series and Systematic Review
TLDR
Surgical treatment regime and long-term neurological outcome in three cases of giant brachial plexus lipomas and results of systematic review are presented.
Intraneural Lipoma with Cartilagenous Metaplasia of Median Nerve
TLDR
Intra-neural lipoma with cartilagenous metaplasia of median nerve in distal forearm presenting with carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in young female is reported because of its rare and atypical presentation.
Intraneural hemangioma of the median nerve: A case report
TLDR
A case of 14-year-old girl who had a soft tissue mass in the region of the left wrist with signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, which was removed using microsurgical epineural and interfasicular dissection.

Fibrolipomatous hamartoma in the foot: magnetic resonance imaging and surgical treatment: a report of two cases.
TLDR
Two unusual cases of fibrolipomatous hamartoma of the foot are reported, with emphasis on preoperative diagnosis by magnetic resonance imaging and successful surgical treatment, where the signal void on the magnetic resonance images represented nerve fascicles with surrounding fibrosis.
Fibrolipomatous hamartoma of the proximal ulnar nerve associated with macrodactyly and macrodystrophia lipomatosa as an unusual cause of cubital tunnel syndrome
TLDR
Attention is focused on fibrolipomatous hamartoma at a previously undescribed location as an unusual cause of cubital tunnel syndrome in a 35 year old female patient who was born with a giant fourth finger of the right hand and noticed a thickening of the ulnar nerve at and above the elbow.
Lipofibroma of the median nerve.
Lipofibromatous hamartoma of the median nerve.
TLDR
Although the follow-up of cases reported in the literature has been brief, apparently such treatment produces symptomatic improvement and excision of all or part of the mass involving the median nerve certainly produces a significant neurological deficit in the hand and is therefore contraindicat-ed.
Spinal hamartomas: a distinct clinical entity.
TLDR
A lesion that is overt on physical examination, yet can have occult spinal canal involvement is described, which is more consistent with a diagnosis of hamartoma than teratoma.
Lipofibromatous hamartoma of the median nerve: case report with magnetic resonance imaging correlation.
TLDR
The authors report a case of lipofibromatous hamartoma of the median nerve in a patient who presented with symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, which helped to stop the progression of the symptoms.
Intraneural lipoma of the sciatic nerve.
TLDR
A large, well- encapsulated intraneural lipoma occurred within the sciatic nerve of a 34-year-old woman, and total excision is recommended in cases of the well-encapsulated type.
Fibrolipomatous hamartoma of nerve: A clinicopathologic analysis of 26 cases
TLDR
Twenty-five patients with neurologic symptoms of pain or paresthesias had physical findings compatible with compression neuropathy, and two others were described as having carpal tunnel syndrome, and one case involved the foot.
