Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, Kagawa Medical School, Japan.


A case of lipofibromatous hamartoma in the foot is described. This tumor-like lesion commonly occurs in the hands, wrists and forearms of young persons. The median nerve is affected in the great majority of cases. Only very rarely, however, is it found in the nerves of the foot. It is believed that the present study is the seventh reported case of lipofibromatous hamartoma in the foot, and is the first case reported in Japan. A review shall be made of the six reported cases in the foot.
