COURSE/DISTRIBUTION: This nerve begins at the bifurcation of the common fibular nerve at the interval between the fibula and the proximal part of fibularis longus. It then passes forwards and downwards between the fibulares muscles and the extensor digitorum longus and pierces the deep fascia at the junction of distal and middle 1/3 of leg in order to divide into its terminal medial and lateral branches on the lateral aspect of leg.
