Wartenberg's Syndrome (Cheiralgia paresthetica)
In 1932, Wartenberg described five cases of isolated neuropathy of the Superficial Radial Nerve (SRN) . He was so impressed by the similiarity to the isolated involvement of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, Meralgia Paraesthetica, that he suggested the name Cheiralgia Paraesthetica.
Wartenberg's Syndrome is an entrapment of the superficial branch of the radial nerve with only sensory manifestations and no motor deficits.
In this condition,the patient reports pain over the distal radial forearm associated with paresthesias over the dorsal radial hand.
