Lipoma of the Proximal Forearm with Compression of the Superficial Radial Nerve


Compressive neuropathies in the upper limb represent a common and admittedly more and more frequent pathology, given how certain peripheral nerves posess an inherent risk of becoming injured due to anatomical positioning. [14] Obesity rate increase and the ageing of population altogether suggest that compressive neuropathies in the upper limb will become even more frequent in the next decade. [14] Themost common sign of nervous compression is the carpal tunnel syndrome, prevailing in approximately 3% of the general population, followed by the cubital tunnel syndrome, and finally the radial tunnel syndrome, which is quite rare.
