Bilateral cubital tunnel syndrome. Case report with review of the literature

Raluca Pais, Daniela Fodor, Teodor Fisher


Cubital tunnel syndrome is the second most common entrapment neuropathy of the upper extremity after carpal tunnel syndrome. However, bilateral compressive ulnar neuropathy is a rare condition.  We report the case of a 19 year old woman, a sewing machine worker, who presented with typical symptoms of ulnar nerve entrapment. The diagnosis was confirmed by electrophysiological studies and ultrasound imaging of the ulnar nerve. The patient fully recovered with conservative medical treatment and physical rehabilitation procedures.
