Doğramaci Y, Kalaci A, Sevinç TT, Yanat AN - J Brachial Plex Peripher Nerve Inj (2008)

Bottom Line: We present a case of 14-year-old girl who had a soft tissue mass in the region of the left wrist with signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.The symptoms were relieved completely, after this procedure, without any neurologic deficit.On follow-up two years later, no recurrence was observed.

ABSTRACT
Hemangiomas of the median nerve are very rare and, so far, only ten cases of intraneural hemangioma of this nerve have been reported in the literature. We present a case of 14-year-old girl who had a soft tissue mass in the region of the left wrist with signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. Total removal of the mass was achieved using microsurgical epineural and interfasicular dissection. The symptoms were relieved completely, after this procedure, without any neurologic deficit. On follow-up two years later, no recurrence was observed. Whenever a child or young adult patient presents with CTS the possibility of a hemangioma involving the median nerve should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis.

Figure 2: Macroscopic view of the lesion, intraneural and fasicular involvement is obvious.

Mentions: The operation was done under general anaesthesia, using a pneumatic tourniquet. Exploration revealed a yellowish brown soft tissue mass with areas of hemorrage and dimensions of approximately 4 × 3 × 1.5 cm, originating from the volar surface of the median nerve with intraneural extension and adhesions to the surrounding tissues (Fig. 2). The mass was removed totally by interfasicular and epineural microsurgical resection technique, without structurally damaging the nerve fibbers.
