Abstract

The compartment syndrome was described by von Volkmann in 1872 and numerous reports have since been published. The anterior tibial syndrome is well known, but the peroneal compartment syndrome is very rare and have some differences in it's etiology, diagnosis and treatment. We experienced a case of the peroneal compartment syndrome developed after playing foot-ball, and treated by fasciotomy with some delay, but obtained a satisfactory functional result.
