- •Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) may be the first presentation of transthyrethin amyloidosis (ATTRv)).
- •Idiopathic CTS is highly prevalent and misdiagnosis is common.
- •Neuroimaging techniques may help in the differential diagnosis.
- •Multidisciplinary interaction is crucial for diagnostic and care of ATTRv.
