Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as the First Sign of Hypothyroidism and Rheumatoid Arthritis: a Case Report

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be a first sign of underlying undiagnosed conditions such as hypothyroidism or rheumatoid arthritis. The erosive form of CTS is uncommon, and generally requires carpal tunnel release surgery as a treatment optionality. Both hands are over 5 months, with the 55-year-old gentleman diagnosed with edema and spontaneous digital ulceration of the distal finger. Digital ulcerations can be a sign of CTS rather than vascular/vessel disorder. The physician should be aware of the CTS' erosive variety and further investigate the disease such as hypothyroidism and rheumatoid arthritis. The etiologic conditions should be addressed first before embarking on surgical carpal tunnel construction.

A Review on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Various Terminologies

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common cause of neuropathy disorder, according to wikipedia. The advancement of CTS biology research has made it possible the emergence of cost-effective diagnostic methods such as magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography diagnosis of CTS. This article summarizes the relevant medical literature on CTS in terms of symptoms, pathophysiology, and various aspects of clinical diagnosis management. This method is more efficient than traditional steroid injection and splinting techniques, although the surgical technique has been tested. In this article, all medical aspects of CTS to update medicine practitioners and understanding of this disease are comprehensively reviewed.

Shear wave elastography is a valuable tool for diagnosing and grading carpal tunnel syndrome

Objective: Objectives: Determine the shear velocity and elasticity of the median nerve with shear wave elastography at the carpal tunnel entrance and determine whether SWE is useful for diagnosing and staging carpal tunnel syndrome. Using Studentu2019s t test and ANOVA with ROC analysis, we investigated the differences between CTS patients and controls, as well as between different grades of CTS based on electrodiagnostic testing. Conclusions The mean MN shear velocity and stiffness in CTS patients were much higher in CTS patients than in controls, and in the severe CTS population, than in the mild CTS group.
