Abstract

Background: Few reports represent palmar cutaneous nerve neuropathy in the wrist due to a ganglion cyst.
Case Presentation: A 25-year-old female was presented with a mass at volar side of the wrist and hypoesthesia at the base of thenar eminence. At ulrasonographic examination, a simple cyst was detected. Sensory response of palmar cutaneous branch of median nerve was absent at the affected side.
Treatment: Ultrasound guided drainage of the cyst was performed. At 3 months follow up
examination, the patient was symptom-free.
Learned Lessons: This case was rare among cases involving palmar cutaneous branch of median nerve due to the wrist ganglion documented by Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS).
