Case 67

Show Summary Details


A 45-year-old man is referred by his GP with numbness in the medial aspect of the right forearm and hand, principally affecting the little finger. It was intermittent when it began 3 years previously but has become constant and sensation is now almost absent. In recent months he has felt that his right hand is weaker than his left. He is right-handed but has now almost stopped using the hand. There is no diurnal variation or neck pain. He has type 2 diabetes which has been well controlled since diagnosis 5 years previously.
