Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the most common entrapment neuropathy caused by the median nerve compression at the wrist level. Early symptoms include pain, numbness, and tingling, mainly in hand. Those symptoms, unfortunately, are often being overlooked by patients and even physicians, resulting in hang hypotrophy in the later stage. Rapid response has been observed in response to short-term oral corticosteroids. Other measures include splinting, local steroid injection, and carpel ligament release surgery. To provide a better understanding of CTS, this chapter highlights the etiology, clinical features, diagnostic evaluation, management, and prognosis of this condition
