Abstract:   (4409 Views)


  The supracondylar process is a beak-like bony projection that arises from the anteromedial

  surface of the humerus. The process has rarely been associated with

  compression of the median nerve and seldom requires treatment. We report a case

  of a supracondylar process that caused tenting of the median nerve with elbow extension

  and pronation.
