Median Nerve Neurofibroma

Median Nerve Neurofibroma

Severe clinical signs of Carpal Tunnel Compression Syndrome CTCS were seen in this young lady. There were no other visible or symptomatic masses seen over the body.

On exposing the mass, this inoperable median nerve lesion was seen, dissected and compression was relieved. Few fibers from the ulnar side were taken for a biopsy  which confirmed the nerve lesion. The bulging nerve could be covered with the stretched out skin. The wound healed well primarily and neurological symptoms were relieved. There were no distinguishable clinical effects of the biopsy.

The patient was symptom-free for two years till she was lost to follow-up.
