ABSTRACT
A patient with a thoracic outlet syndrome produced by a large intra-axillary lipoma is presented. Removal of this lipoma without removal of either the first rib or clavicle produced reversal of the patient's symptoms which were primarily neurologic. This report emphasizes the fact that although rare, tumor in this canal whether benign or malignant, can lead to a thoracic outlet syndrome. Current concepts of the pathophysiology and management of the thoracic outlet syndrome are presented.
