Carpal tunnel syndrome associated with sarcoidosis in identical twin patients.

We present two identical twin sarcoidosis patients with carpal tunnel syndrome. A number of factors may cause carpal tunnel syndrome like wrist anatomy, occupation, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, pregnancy and renal failure. Although the above factors do not directly cause carpal tunnel syndrome, they may increase your chances of developing or aggravate median nerve damage as it is in sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis relevant neuropathy and granulomas may be the primary mechanism of sarcoidosis associated carpal tunnel syndrome. Although rare, carpal tunnel syndrome may be a feature of sarcoidosis that may lead to irreversible damage in cases of delayed diagnosis. The presence of this syndrome in identical twin patients may shed light into the pathogenesis and the genetic transmission of sarcoidosis with the associated carpal tunnel syndrome.

In conclusion, Chinese postmenopausal women with T2DM had a similar risk of incident VFs, but a significantly higher risk of incident non-VF, compared to women without DM. Higher BMI did not modify the effect of T2DM on risk of VFs, but it increased the association be tween T2DM and risk of non-VFs. LS BMDT-score was similarly and negatively associated with VF risk in T2DM and non-DM women and appear to be useful for clinical evaluation of VF risk.

ConclusionWe hypothesize that after removal of the right fallopian tube retrograde menstrual flow was blocked and caused her severe dysmenorrhea. After the excision of the rudimentary horn the patient's pain improved and went on to naturally conceive an intrauterine pregnancy. The Patient is currently in her second trimester.
