Abstract

Ulnar artery aneurysms distal to the carpal ligament represent an uncommon but uniquely characteristic disease entity. As a result of repetitive palmar trauma, the hypothenar hammer syndrome should be suspected in males with this history and unilateral digital ischemia which spares the thumb. The pathophysiology of this syndrome and its management is reviewed with presentation of an index case.
