A case of tarsal tunnel syndrome secondary to a ganglion is described. Both ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging clearly showed the presence of a ganglion compressing the medial plantar nerve within the tarsal tunnel. The detection of a space-occupying lesion in a patient with tarsal tunnel syndrome is important as surgery is advised. (J HK Coll Radiol 2001;4:234-237)
