 Acute median nerve symptoms are not commonly seen. Less frequent is the association with hamate fractures, which usually produce ulnar nerve symptoms. We report a case of a patient with an hamate fracture and acute median nerve injury. On surgical intervention, a bone fragment, directly responsible for the symptoms, was found inside the carpal tunnel.
