Object: Focal neuropathy results from an injury of any etiology that occurs in a peripheral nerve. The lesion may be followed by alteration of the sensory sphere (either dysesthesia or paresthesia with or without neuropathic pain), or by compensatory attitudes that are attributable to the altered contraction in muscles that are innervated by the injured nerve. Methods: We describe the case of a 13-year-old boy who attended our hospital for a focal neuropathy of the radial nerve. Conclusion: This neuropathy was revealed after the removal of a plaster Zimmer splint that was applied following a post-traumatic subluxation of the metacarpal-trapezoid joint.
