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.
