Carpal tunnel syndrome - bilateral


Ultrasound evidence of bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome with the findings reflective of the severity of the clinical condition. The right median nerve was more swollen and irregular than the left.

There appeared to be generalized swelling of the soft tissue at the proximal end of both carpal tunnels and some swelling at the distal end on the right. Again, these changes are more severe on the right side.

No space-occupying lesions were seen and the flexor retinacula did not appear thickened. There was no evidence of hyperemia.
