Hypothenar hammer syndrome is a rare cause of distal hand ischemia following ulnar artery occlusion due to repetitive trauma of the hypothenar region. It characteristically occurs in the dominant hand of middle-aged crafstmen who had been exposed to long period of vibrating tools, but also in athletes. We report a rare case of hypothenar hammer syndrome treated with resection of the involved arterial segment of ulnar artery and revascularization using interpositional autologous vein graft.
