Simple ganglia involving or compressing the lateral popliteal nerve have been described to give rise to a symptom complex of pain in the region of the fibular head often radiating down the course of cutaneous distribution of the nerve, varying degree of motor and sensory paralysis, and a palpable swelling in the region of the head of the fibula (Brooks 1952, Parkes 1961, Clark 1961, Stack, Bianco and MacCarty 1965) Clark (1961) has reviewed the literature and analysed the clinical picture, operative and histological findings, treatment and results in twelve cases of lateral popliteal nerve ganglia reported earlier. Twenty more cases have been reported since including Clark’s 3 cases. From the description of operative findings available, seventeen of the thirtytwo reported cases appear to belong to what Parkes (1961) has described as intraneural ganglia of the nerve. The case reported here had typical morphological and histological features of an intraneural ganglion of the lateral popliteal nerve with somewhat atypical clinical features.
