Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Nontraumatic neuropathies of the upper limb are rare in children. In this paper, we present the latest updates in this field and also critically review the diagnosis and treatment of nerve compression syndromes in children. This review describes the most common manifestations including idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), CTS occurring as a component of lysosomal storage diseases (mucopolysaccharidosis) and hereditary neuropathies, ulnar nerve neuropathy, and atraumatic radial nerve neuropathies.
