Abstract

Cubital tunnel syndrome is one of the most common entrapment neuropathies in adults. It is mainly caused by the depression of ulnar nerve from normal structures at the elbow area. Despite the fact that several pathgological entities can be potential mechanisms of the syndrome, the pathogenesis due to benign or malignant neoplasms is extremely rare. In the present report we describe the first case of cubital tunnel syndrome due to giant cell tumour of the tendon sheaths.
