Drop Foot Developed Secondary to Peroneal Nerve Located Intraneural Ganglion Caused by Proximal Tibiofibular Joint: Case Report

Abstract

Peroneal intraneural ganglion cyst which manifests itself with the complaint about palpable swelling and pain around the knee laterally adjacent to fibula neck, that peroneal nerve passes through, is a pathology that can lead to neurological symptoms. For the diagnosis of peroneal intraneural ganglion cyst, which is a rare reason for drop foot, physical examination, electromyography and radiographic imaging methods are used. In this case report, we aim to present peroneal nerve located intraneural ganglion cyst, which is a rare reason for lower extremity paralysis, of a 11 year old male patient who applied our clinic with the picture of painful swelling on outer-side of his knee and drop foot. We believe that surgical intervention should be performed in the shortest possible time with early and true diagnosis in order to regain of neurological functions completely in case of peroneal intraneural ganglion cyst. *Corresponding author: Reşit Sevimli, Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Turgut Özal Medicine Faculty, İnönü University, Turkey, Tel: +904223773000; E-mail: resitsevimli@hotmail.com Citation: Sevimli R, Karakaplan M, Korkmaz MF, Salih AH (2016) Drop Foot Developed Secondary to Peroneal Nerve Located Intraneural Ganglion Caused by Proximal Tibiofibular Joint: Case Report.
