A rare condition known as congenital thenar hypoplasia is made even more puzzling when it affects just one particular muscle and is accompanied by vascular and nerve abnormalities. The authors of the current research describe a case of a 14-year-old female who had a bifid median nerve, a persisting median artery, and a unilateral lack of the abductor pollicis brevis muscle. This aberration was evaluated and documented using a thorough assessment that included radiography, electro-myographic, and magnetic resonance imaging studies.
