A 29-year-old pregnant dentist developed acute right forearm pain and associated weakness in her hand. A diagnosis of pronator syndrome was made. A review of the anatomy, pathophysiology, and treatment of pronator syndrome is given. We present this case to alert dentists, both male and female, of an uncommon but definite occupational hazard.
