Wartenberg Syndrome

Wartenberg syndrome affects a different part of the radial nerve than what supinator syndrome affects. Pain, tingling and numbness occur on the posterior side of the wrist and the webbed-space between thumb and index finger. Electrophysiological diagnosis in this area is often difficult, so diagnosis must be made based on the clinical picture.


Wartenberg syndrome is a nerve compression syndrome.
