Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study was to analyze the radiologic characteristics of lipofibromatous hamartomas affecting upper limb peripheral nerves.

CONCLUSION:

Although there are pathognomonic features that characterize lipofibromatous hamartoma on MRI, the range of appearances is broad. Sonography appears to show equally characteristic features and may be a useful tool for assessing this condition.
