Abstract
Anterior interosseous nerve is purely a motor nerve and supplies flexor pollicis longus, flexor digitorum profundus to the index finger, and pronator quadratus. The etiology and treatment option of anterior interosseous nerve syndrome remain controversial. Bilateral involvement of the anterior interosseous nerve have been described rarely; however, we found no reported case of nonsimultaneous bilateral anterior interosseous nerve palsy associated with the entrapment neuropathy. We present the unique case of delayed anterior interosseous nerve syndrome, 3 years 5 months following an identical event in the opposite extremity and literature review.
