Abstract

Fibrolipomatous hamartoma is a rare lesion of the peripheral nerves, most commonly occurring in the median nerve. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrates hypointense serpentine bundles on T1- and T2-weighted images embedded in hyperintense fat. This appearance is pathognomonic of fibrolipomatous hamartoma and obviates the need for a biopsy and can help guide further treatment.
