Sciatic nerve compression due to a ganglion cyst around the posterior aspect of the hip joint is not commonly described in literature. We report a rare case of a 63-year-old man with a ganglion cyst around his hip joint, who presented with symptoms of sciatica. After excision of the cyst, the patient was symptom free. A high index of clinical doubt and detailed clinical examination is required for non-palpable cystic lesions in close proximity to the sciatic nerve in patients presenting with symptoms of sciatica and in patients with concomitant of lumbar disk herniation.
