Claw hand seen in ulnar nerve palsy?
Ulnar Nerve Palsy
Yes, it can be lesion of ulnar n. l.sin.
i would say it's ulnar nerve palsy
claw hand + interosseous muscles atrophy-->Left ulnar nerve damage, most probably due to a compression:
- at lung apex--> caused by Pancoast cancer
- at the elbow --> caused by fibrosis (student elbow) or bad consolidation of a medial epicondyle fracture or by flexor carpi ulnaris
- at the Guyon's canal--> caused by tumors, epidermoid cysts, etc.
Answer : Ulnar N Palsy
