Dr. Vijay Sharma, Division of Neurology, National University Hospital, Singapore-119074. Email: email@example.com
Carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaudâ€™s phenomena are common diseases and coexist in some patients while in others Raynaudâ€™s phenomenon may be a clinical feature of carpal tunnel syndrome. I describe an interesting case with Raynaudâ€™s phenomenon as a predominant presenting clinical feature due to an underlying mild carpal tunnel syndrome with preferential involvement of the autonomic fibers. Nocturnal wrist splinting, a common treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, resulted in marked improvement in the symptoms.
