Intraneural cyst of the peroneal nerve. Juxtaarticular ganglion.

Intraneural cyst. A male patient, 64 years old, complained of inability to perform dorsal flexion of the left ankle for eleven months, without comorbidities or history of trauma.

On clinical examination, the left foot showed a plantar drop, without active dorsiflexion or any radiographic changes in the knee or ankle, figures 1 to 3.

The knee resonance detected the presence of a lobulated and elongated ganglion cyst inside the peroneal nerve and the electroneuromyography reports the absence of action potentials of the peroneal nerve on the left, suggesting axoniotmesis, figures 4 to 7.
