Show Summary Details


A 24-year-old female hairdresser is referred to the clinic. She has noticed a progressive change in sensation in both her hands, on the right a little more than the left, over the past 2 years. This has not been particularly intrusive and she has not noticed any functional impairment and is still working normally. However, about 2 months previously she burnt her thumb very badly on some curling tongs and did not notice until someone pointed it out, at which point she attended the emergency department. Severe loss of pain and temperature sensation was found and her GP subsequently arranged an MRI scan.
