The intrinsic hand muscles are innervated by the ulnar and median nerves. There are anatomic anomalous innervations in the upper extremities that every electromyographer should be able to identify as these may be commonly encountered. The presence of these anomalies may lead to challenges in interpreting electrophysiological studies and during surgical operations. Furthermore, the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may be diminished or accentuated by the presence of these anomalies.
