Weakness of all median nerve nerve muscles (pronator teres, most finger flexors).
Thenar wasting (Ape hand).
Benediction hand, sensory loss over thenar eminence.
Pronator teres syndrome
Compression due to pronator teres. Pain on pronation but no muscle loss.
Anterior interosseous nerve
Cannot make OK sign. Weak flexion on 1st IP joint.
Carpal tunnel
Thenar wasting. No sensory loss.
Path of ulnar nerve
Guyon's canal
Proximal median nerve damage (cubital fossa and above)
Motor=finger and wrist flexors, thenar muscles, 1st and 2nd lumbricals. Can't flex distal IP joints on digits 2 and 3. Benediction hand when attempting to make a fist.
Above elbow=loss of pronation and medial deviation during wrist flexion.
Loss of sensation in lateral palm and tips of digits 1-3. Flexor of thumb IP joint only.
Ulnar nerve forearm neuropathies
Elbow-loss of dexterity, decreased grip and pinch strength.
Weakness in adduction at wrist.
