Abstract

A hypertrophied peroneal tubercle can present as a bony prominence at the lateral aspect of the foot and a peroneal tenosynovitis or tear. We report a case of a 52-year-old man complaining of lateral foot tingling pain and numbness. The sural nerve entrapment and peroneus longus tenosynovitis by hypertrophied peroneal tubercle were confirmed. Good results were obtained after excision of the hypertrophied peroneal tubercle and sural nerve release.
