We present the rare case of a 47-year-old male long-distance runner who was referred to our hospital with a longstanding pain in his left calf. Clinical history, as well as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging scans, showed an accessory peroneal muscle. This muscle was identified as a peroneus quartus muscle. On ultrasound, controlled intracompartmental pressure measurement, a chronic peroneal compartment syndrome, was diagnosed. We performed an endoscopic-assisted fasciotomy of the peroneal compartment. This resolved the patient's symptoms completely and allowed the runner to return to competition shortly after the surgery.

We report about hirudotherapy in a patient with chronic complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in the right hand. CRPS is a multifactorial disease associated with disabling pain as well as sensory and motor deficits. The optimal therapeutic management is based on personalized multimodal treatment approaches; however, hirudotherapy has not been described in the available literature. To date, we have completed five medicinal leech treatments. Altogether, hirudotherapy led to rapid and substantial relief of symptoms, especially with respect to pain intensity ratings and skin temperature asymmetries. In Addition, the patient&rs...
