Abstract

We report a case of spontaneous partial posterior interosseous nerve palsy where the ganglion adjacent to the nerve was not the main cause of the compression. Instead, a thick fascial band deep to the distal edge of the supinator was found responsible. This case illustrates the importance of completing the nerve exploration to fit with the clinical picture.
