    A 59-year-old woman was referred with weakness, paraesthesia, numbness and clawing of the little and ring fingers for the last 2 years. MRI of the cervical spine was normal and nerve conduction velocity revealed abnormality of the ulnar nerve. Ultrasound and MRI showed medial osteophytes and effusion of the elbow joint with stretched and thinned ulnar nerve in the cubital tunnel. The patient underwent release and anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve with significant relief of symptoms. © BMJ Publishing Group Limited 2021. No commercial re-use. See rights and permissions.
