Abstract

We herein report a case of acute carpal tunnel syndrome due to pyogenic flexor tenosynovitis in the absence of any antecedent injury whose rapid progression and course was similar to that seen with necrotizing fasciitis. This potentially disastrous clinical condition must be promptly recognized, since it needs early surgical management to prevent morbidity.
