ROMAN VEAS, Javier; RUIZ CONRADS, Pedro  and  BRAGA SILVA, Jefferson. Accessory Muscles: A Cause of Nerve Compression in the Distal Forearm. Case Report and Literature Review. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.1, pp.97-101. ISSN 0717-9502.

Nerve compression by anomalous muscles located at the wrist and distal forearm is an infrequent condition. Accessory muscles may compress underlying structures in the Carpal Tunnel region or ulnar canal , producing pain and paresthesia. Two cases of ulnar and median nerve compression, caused by prominent accessory muscles at the distal forearm, are described. Literature review is presented.

Keywords : Muscles; Nerve Compression Syndromes; Anatomic Variation.
