We present 3 cases of a 12-year-old boy, an 8-year-old girl, and a 9-year-old boy with progressive paresis of the peroneal nerve. Peroneal intraneural ganglia are a rare cause of paralysis of the lower limb in children; more often these symptoms occur because of exostosis. Ultrasound imaging in both patients showed a cystic mass near the fibular neck. Magnetic resonance imaging examination revealed that the ganglion is communicating with the proximal tibiofibular joint. Surgical exploration in these patients confirmed a cystic formation involving the common peroneal nerve. The ganglion originates from the articular nerve branch to the proximal tibiofibular joint. Total recovery of nerve function was seen 2 years later for the first patient, whereas the other 2 showed immediate postoperative improvement of peroneal nerve function and complete recovery within 6 to 8 weeks. On the other hand, patients with exostosis showed varying outcomes. In children with symptoms suspicious of nerve compression, fast diagnosis and immediate treatment are necessary to ensure the best possible recovery.

An Unusual Cause of Paralysis of the Peroneal Nerve: A Report of 3 Cases: Retraction We would like to retract the paper “An unusual cause of paralysis of the peroneal nerve: a report of 3 cases,” by authors Yaqoub Sulaiman Al Mufargi, MD, SSC-ortho, Charles Adam Mouch, MD, Kai Ziebarth, MD, Alexander Joeris, MD and Theddy Slongo, MD, published in the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics 2011;31:e50–e52. It has been brought to our attention that Dr Theddy Slongo along with Dr Ulrike Waldschmidt published a paper in the Journal of Pediatric Surgery 2010;45:259–261 as “An unusual cause of paralysis of the peroneal nerve – a case report.” We have compared the two papers electronically using cross-technology and there is an 80% duplication. Therefore we wish to retract this article. Robert N. Hensinger, MD George H. Thompson, MD Editors of the Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics
