A case report is presented in which a tissue expander was used to correct a burn scar in the upper arm. During the expansion period the inflated expander caused a paresis of the radial nerve. The paresis recovered gradually after removal of the expander. Problems concerning tissue expansion in the upper extremities are discussed in this paper.
