Traumatically induced lymphangioma of the ulnar nerve. Case report.
J Neurosurg. 2000 Dec; 93(6):1069-71.JN

Abstract

Lymphangiomas, benign hamartomatous lesions involving lymphatic tissue, result from a failure of lymphatic channels to communicate with the venous system or normal lymphatic channels. The authors describe a case in which a lymphangioma arising within the ulnar nerve developed after trauma to the same area. This is the second reported case of a lymphangioma that originated from a peripheral nerve and the first case in which the lesion was associated with trauma. The authors propose that a lymphangioma involving the peripheral nerve may be the result of trauma.
