Which of the following expression is correct about the injured structure in this patient?

A. Compression on musculocutaneous nerve
B. Lunate dislocation
C. Fiercely upward stretching out right arm

Default Yes, the answer is D

Because the patients complains of right hand palm numbness, we are thinking about median nerve impairment, which is in charge of the sensory of lateral skin of the palm. Median nerve is composed of nerve fibers from medial cords, the continuous part of lower(inferior) trunk.

also called "parkbench paralysis" when drunken people sleep sitting on a bench with one arm over the backrest. I have also learned the term "paralysis d'amoureux", if you girl friend is sleeping on your arm the whole night. Seriously I was asked this in an oral exam...
