Abstract

Carpal tunnel is a densely packed compartment at the proximal aspect of the palm. Thereby the anomaly of each anatomical structure within can contribute to the compression of the median nerve, passing above the flexor tendons within the tunnel. Several anomalous structures have been reported in literature, however perse presence of an anomalous vein in the tunnel without any adjacent artery has not being reported yet. The case highlights the methodology of the surgery for carpal tunnel and describes the anomalous venous structure encountered within the tunnel.

Keywords: Anomalous Vein, Median artery, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
