Abstract

We experienced a case of an athlete with a painful mass on the distal peroneal musculature after sports activity, and diagnosed as the entrapment syndrome of superficial peroneal nerve. We treated the case with the mini-open and subcutaneous fasciotomy to release the entrapped peroneal nerve. We report the case with a review of the literature.
