[Fibrolipoma of the median nerve. A case report].
ABSTRACT The authors report a case of fibrolipoma of the median nerve in a 6-year old boy presenting as macrodactyly with clinodactyly.

The difficulties of diagnosis of the condition are presented as are the difficulties of management where a balance has to be struck between conservative treatment and amputation.
