The first radiographic image of a peripheral nerve disorder? Lipomatous macrodactyly (unrecognized lipomatosis of nerve).
Acta Neurochir (Wien). 2015 Jun; 157(6):1059-62; discussion 1062.AN

Abstract

Lipomatosis of nerves (LN) involves benign fibro-fatty infiltration and is often associated with territorial overgrowth of soft tissue and bone; this distinctive disease pattern can be visualized on plain radiographs. We recently discovered a case (presented by Sir Robert Jones in 1898 to the Pathological Society of London) that indirectly represents a historical landmark in the imaging of peripheral nerves. The clinical findings and image, with obvious soft tissue and bone overgrowth, are pathognomonic for LN, making this one of the earliest radiological observations of a peripheral nerve lesion.
