Author(s): Dr. Tathagata Bose, Dr. Anirban Chatterjee, Dr. Vikash Kapoor and Dr. Ejaz Bari

Abstract: Peroneal Intraneural Ganglion Cyst is a rare condition with very few cases reported in literature. A 55 year old middle-aged lady presented with complaints of pain over lateral aspect of right knee and leg for the previous one month. She also complained about the inability to extend the ankle and the toes for one week. There was no recent history of trauma. She had noticed the tingling and numbness over right foot for the last one month. The typical radiological features and atypical clinical course, favored the diagnosis of Peroneal Intraneural Ganglion Cyst. After all necessary investigations, she underwent definitive management, i.e. Dissection of the Common peroneal nerve along with Neurolysis, decompression of the Ganglion Cyst, isolation and disconnection of the articular branch of the nerve and Disarticulation of the proximal Tibiofibular Joint. At the latest follow up (6 months) she has completely recovered from her foot drop and there are no signs of recurrence of the ganglion cyst.
