Ulnar Neuropathy at the Wrist Mimicking Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Primary Speaker: Beshoy Ghaly
Co-Speakers: Michael Ross, Ryan Boggs
Platform Moderator: Gregory Paul Ernst
Discussion: Our case demonstrates that misdiagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome can occur, even when clinical features and electrodiagnostic findings are consistent with the disorder. This patient case underscores the importance of recognizing signs and symptoms of disorders that can potentially mimic and/or interact with carpal tunnel syndrome, and how appropriate clinical judgement should be utilized, even when clinical features and electrodiagnostic findings are consistent with the disorder. The addition of musculoskeletal ultrasound assessment to traditional electrodiagnostic testing helped in reaching the accurate underlying diagnosis in this case.
