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

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be the first sign of undiagnosed disorders such as hypothyroidism or rheumatoid arthritis. The erosive form of CTS is uncommon, and usually requires carpal tunnel release surgery as a treatment option. Both hands of both hands over 5 months, a 55-year-old gentleman was injected with hypoesthesia and spontaneous digital ulceration of the distal finger. The anesthesia was relived post-operatively, and the digital ulceration healed in a few weeks. Digital ulcerations may be more a case of CTS than vascular/vessel disorder. The physician should be aware of CTS' erosive variety and further investigate the disease of hypothyroidism and rheumatoid arthritis.

A Review on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Various Terminologies

Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common form of neuropathy disease. . permalink (link) Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common form of neuropathy disorder. The emergence of novel diagnostic techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasonography diagnosis of CTS is made possible by the advancement of CTS biology research, which includes magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound diagnosis of CTS. This article summarizes the most relevant scientific literature of CTS in terms of symptoms, pathophysiology, and various methods of clinical diagnosis therapy. This method is more efficient than traditional steroid injection and splinting techniques, although the surgical method has been tested. In this article, all medical aspects of CTS, up-training medicine specialists, and understanding of the disease are systematically summarized.

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

Objective Objective: Objective With shear wave elastography at the carpal tunnel entrance, determine whether SWE is useful for diagnosing and staging carpal tunnel syndrome. Using Student's t test and ANOVA with ROC analysis, we explored the differences between CTS patients and controls and between different grades of CTS based on electrodiagnostic tests. Conclusions MN shear velocity and stiffness were significantly higher in CTS patients than in controls and much greater in the severe CTS group than in the mild CTS group.
