A case of fibrolipomatous hamartoma in the right foot is described here. This lesion commonly occurs in the hands, wrists and forearms of infants, and less commonly in children and young adults. The median nerve is affected in 80% of cases. Only very rarely is it found in the nerves of the foot. It is believed that the present case study is the tenth reported case of fibrolipomatous hamartoma in the foot, and is the first case reported in Nigeria to the authors’ knowledge. The previous nine cases affected the medial plantar nerve in five and superficial peroneal nerve in four. This is the only reported case in English literature affecting a branch of the sural nerve.
