Abstract:   (4381 Views)
Entrapment of median nerve can be developed at multiple sites along this nerve. One of the compression sites of median nerve is supracondylar area of humerous. Sometimes struther ligament or spur or both of them are the rare cause of entrapment syndrome of the median nerve. Struther ligament or spur can compress ulnar nerve and/or brachial artery. These cases may have median ulnar nerve or brachial artery symptoms and they are sometimes asymptomatic which can accidentlly be detected by radiography. Most commonly, these cases refer with median nerve compression syndrome and they complain about numbness and pain in their upper extremity. Sometimes pain radiates to shoulder and neck in the upper part and to hand in the lower part, that is mistakenly diagnosed as a sign of radiculopathy or other compression neuropathies. The present study is a case report of a 25-year-old man who referred with having pain and numbness in right upper extremity.
