Multimodal evaluation of carpal tunnel syndrome in a pre-symptomatic TTR mutation carrier

Published:February 28, 2023DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jns.2023.120596

      Highlights

      • 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.
