Abstract

Three cases of ganglion cysts arising from the proximal radioulnar joint associated with a compression neuropathy of the radial or posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) are discussed. Treatment by surgical excision resulted in complete resolution of symptoms in all patients. Computed tomography scan proved to be the most useful preoperative test.
