Thenar motor neuropathy (TMN) is a compressive mononeuropathy of recurrent motor branch of median nerve. It is infrequentand may have different pathogenesis. It may be a unique entity of disease or considered a variant of carpal tunnelsyndrome involving the motor branch only. We report a case of TMN induced by vigorous massage that applied strong digitalpressure in the region of the base of palm and thenar muscles.
