DEFINITION

Thrombosed ulnar artery aneurysm of the dominant hand of a manuel worker

 

CHARACTERISTIC CLINICAL FEATURES AND RADIOLOGIC FINDINGS

Most aneurysms of the hand and wrist involve the ulnar artery which is hammered against the hook of the carpal hamate bone in the hypothenar eminence.

Ultrasound and MRI are actually the most accurate methods for diagnosing and locating ulnar artery aneurysms; arteriography is mandatory to document the professional disease.

@12.1 early film ; @13.1 later film.

DDx

Other etiology of ischemia of the hand (thoracic outlet syndrome, arteriosclerosis or thromboangiitis obliterans)
