Abstract

The onset mechanism of cubital tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome may be similar in haemodialysis patients. Carpal tunnel syndrome is well recognized as a consequence of dialysis-associated amyloidosis. This case report documents the development of cubital tunnel syndrome in a patient on haemodialysis treatment for 10 years. Proliferating granulation tissue at the elbow had entrapped and displaced the ulnar nerve. This was corrected surgically, and the patient experienced immediate relief of the numbness and the "tingling", but the muscular atrophy had not improved after 8 months.
