Cubital Tunnel Syndrome Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy The cubital tunnel is the opening between the two heads of a muscle through which the ulnar nerve passes at the elbow and enters the forearm. The muscle is called the flexor carpi ulnaris. Compression of the ulnar nerve in this passageway results in the cubital tunnel syndrome which is a form of mononeuropathy due to compression (or other injury) of the ulnar nerve at the elbow. Symptoms of the cubital tunnel syndrome may include pain and numbness along the ulnar aspect of the hand and forearm (the little finger side), and weakness of the hand.
