Common peroneal neuropathy is uncommon in children and adolescents. In this population, it is usually caused by direct nerve injury at the fibular head level. Most commonly, the nerve is damaged during sports-related blunt trauma. Other etiologies such as hereditary neuropathies and bone tumors are much less frequent. In some cases, repetitive microtrauma to the peroneal nerve is fell to cause neuropathy. We describe the case of a teenager who developed common peroneal neuropathy in association with prolonged wave-surfing in the presence of weight loss.
