Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is an entrapment neuropathy where the median nerve is compressed in the carpal canal. There are many variations of the distal branches of the median nerve at the wrist. Anatomical variations of this nerve have fundamental clinical importance to prevent injuries, especially during limited open or endoscopic surgical procedures. A case is presented of an anomalous course of the recurrent motor branch of the median nerve and high division of the third common digital nerve seen in a limited open carpal tunnel release.
