abstract

  • An amputation neuroma is a nerve's attempt at repair following amputation. While many are asymptomatic, some present as a painful mass. We describe a patient who, following a forequarter amputation for sarcoma, developed a stump neuroma that was unusual because it was first discovered on a routine chest roentgenogram.
