Özet

We present a case of a 10 year-old girl with slowly enlarging, painless mass at the volar aspect of her left hand. The lesion had been present since infancy. Diagnosis was lipomatosis of the median nerve which is a very rare, benign tumor involving peripheral nerves. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) features of this lesion are discussed.
