Fracture of the hamate hook presenting as median nerve palsy



Fracture of the hamate hook presenting as median nerve palsy



Archives Of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery. 117(3): 173-174,.



We report a case of fracture of the hamate hook presenting as median nerve palsy and discuss the etiology of this rarely seen complication. We consider that the median nerve palsy in this case was due to direct nerve compression within the carpal tunnel caused by a displaced fractured hook fragment.
