Lipofibromatous hamartoma (LFH) of nerve is a rare benign, tumour-like fibro-fatty malformation of the epi- and perineurium. Major peripheral nerves of the upper extremity are mostly involved, most commonly the median nerve and its branches. Although there is a relatively large number of publications on LFH, involvement of digital nerves is rarely reported or described. A case of LFH involving the digital ulnar nerve of the index finger without macrodactyly is presented; the aetiology, pathogenesis, differential diagnosis and surgical management are described.
