Mnemonics for Hand appearances in Nerve lesions

Confused about which nerve lesions cause which hand deformity ?
Use the mnemonic DR CUMA to remember hand appearances in Radial, Ulnar and Median nerve lesions.

  • Drop → Radial nerve
  • Claw → Ulnar nerve
  • Median nerve → Ape hand

Hope that mnemonic helped. Got a better mnemonic for the same? Let us know in the comments below.
