The supracondylar process is a congenital bone projection on the distal anteromedial humerus often associated with a ligament of Struthers, a fibrous connection between the process and medial epicondyle. It is largely asymptomatic and only on rare occasions presents with neurovascular compression resulting in a supracondylar process syndrome. This case report describes a 28-year-old woman with supracondylar process syndrome, and our management. The topic is further explored with a literature review of 43 reported cases. Analysis of the case reports indicates that isolated median nerve injuries are the most common. Other presentations such as fractures, vascular compromise, and ulnar nerve involvement are less frequent.
