The relative frequency of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) among the patients referred for electrophysiological studies was studied. The case material included both inpatients and outpatients with various peripheral nerve disorders during the study period. CTS constituted 7 percent of all the peripheral nerve disorders and 83.6 percent of entrapment neuropathies. Eighty four patients were referred with the diagnosis of CTS and only 49 percent could be confirmed electrophysiologically. The presentation was that of acral and /or brachial paraesthesiae or pain.
