The hypothesis that the chronic tennis-elbow syndrome is caused by an entrapment neuropathy of the radial nerve (Roles and Maudsley 1972) was put to the test prospectively in ten patients. Detailed orthopaedic, neurological and neurophysiological examinations did not reveal any involvement of the radial nerve. It is concluded that this syndrome cannot be explained by an entrapment neuropathy.
