Case Report
A rare case with atypical findings: schwannoma of the radial nerve
A 53-year-old male complained of weakness in the dorsum of the 5-4-3rd fingers of the right hand. The musculus extensor digitorum communis was heavy and the musculus extensor indices proprius was light involved in the needle electroneuromyography study. Radial nerve ultrasonography showed a mass(schwannoma) which located on the radial nerve course after the lateral epicondyle at the elbow level. In conclusion, we should consider radial nerve schwannoma in patients with radial nerve injury and when there is an atypical involvement of the muscles innervated by the radial nerve, we should utilize ultrasonography for evaluation.
