Lipoma arborescens is an uncommon pseudotumoral synovial lesion usually located in the suprapatellar pouch of the knee. Lipoma arborescens involving the synovial sheaths of the tendons is exceedingly rare. This diagnosis should be considered, particularly in patients with chronic joint effusion. We report a case with lipoma arborescens affecting the synovial sheaths of the peroneal tendons without involvement of the adjacent ankle joint. To our knowledge, this is the second reported case of lipoma arborescens involving tenosynovial sheaths of tendons arround the ankle joint without ankle joint involvment.
