Abstract
Hemangioma of the median nerve is very rare and a few cases of intraneural hemangioma of this nerve have been reported in the literature. We present a case of 33-year-old man who had an intraneural hemangioma of the median nerve. He complained of symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome for a month. On preoperative ultrasonography, a mass of the median nerve was observed in the region of the right wrist. At surgery, a mass of the median nerve was removed totally and histopathologic examination confirmed an intraneural hemangioma of the median nerve. The symptoms were relieved completely without any neurologic deficit after the operation.
