A 66-year-old man had bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and 6 years of chronic joint pain and stiffness of the shoulders, hips, and knees. He reported occasional bruising around his eyes; physical examination showed raised soft tissue masses around the sternoclavicular joints and scapulae, and laboratory examination was notable for significant levels of protein and albumin. What is the diagnosis and what would you do next?

Abstract BACKGROUND: Carpal tunnel syndrome is diagnosed based on history, physical examination, and nerve conduction testing; however, there are no clear criteria for the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome. Recently, studies have aimed to diagnose carpal tunnel syndrome through ultrasound or MRI. The purpose of this study was to compare and analyze the cross-sectional area of the median nerve between patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and a control group. METHODS: From July 2015 to August 2017, we retrospectively analyzed fishery and white-collar workers (164 people, 37 men, 127 women). Carpal tunnel synd...
