  • Spastic Ataxia with Congenital Miosis

    For example, loss of sensation restricted to one little finger and the adjacent half of the ring finger is most likely due to an ulnar nerve disorder; numbness in this distribution[casemed.case.edu] If the patient is numb in the little finger and half of the adjacent ring finger and the corresponding part of the palm of the hand, then an ulnar neuropathy should be considered[casemed.case.edu] Numbness of the thumb, index, and middle finger will suggest a median neuropathy.[casemed.case.edu]
