Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The supracondylar process of the humerus has been described by anatomists and anthropologists in man and lower animals. Infrequently this process may cause compression of the median nerve. We are presenting such a case along with a brief review of the literature. Excision of the bone process led to immediate disappearance of symptoms.
