We report an intraneural ganglion of the posterior interosseous nerve causing lateral elbow pain. The cystic lesion was identified by magnetic resonance imaging, and surgical exploration using the microscope permitted complete extirpation of the cyst without damage to nerve tissue. The patient experienced complete relief from pain, with full preservation of function.
