Lee, Chun, and Kim: Thenar Compartment syndrome: A Case Report


The compartment syndrome was first described by Von Volkmann in 1872 and then many reports have been published. The anterior tibial compartment syndrome and the volar compartment syndrome of the forearm are well known, but the thenar compartment syndrome is very rare. A case of the thenar compartment syndrome developed with the CO poisoning was experienced and treated satisfactorily by the fasciotomy and secondary repair.
