Giant median nerve in bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome


We introduce a middle age healthy man with sequential bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. At the surgery, we encountered a wide median nerve in both wrists. Although enlargement of median nerve in carpal tunnel has been well documented, 25 mm width of the nerve is a rare scene, underscoring that leaving the nerve under the unyielding pressure would lead to a fibrous atrophic median nerve.
