Abstract

The palmar cutaneous branch of the median nerve was dissected in 25 fresh cadavers. The origin from the median nerve, the course, termination, and variability of the palmar cutaneous nerve are described in relation to two reference lines. In no case did a branch of the palmar cutaneous nerve extend ulnar to the axial line of the ring finger. The planning of incisions around the palmar aspect of the palm and wrist should be based on this anatomical knowledge.
