Nowadays, median nerve entrapment is a frequent issue. Many physicians are familiar with the most common median entrapment, which is the
carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). By contrast, less frequent entrapments, historically called “pronator syndrome” are still misdiagnosed as overuse
syndrome, flexor tendinitis or other conditions. This article is meant to introduce proximal median nerve entrapments, followed by a case report
of the rarest example – anterior interosseous nerve syndrome (AIN syndrome).

Key words
nerve entrapment – nerve compression syndromes – median nerve – median neuropathy – neurosurgery
