Abstract

Two women presented with similar symptoms of acute pain in the hand that was diagnosed as acute carpal tunnel syndrome caused by peritendinitis calcarea. Radiological examinations in both cases showed calcifications in the carpal tunnel. Both patients were operated on immediately and the median nerve was decompressed. Both were completely relieved of pain after operation and hand function returned to normal.
