Acromicric dysplasia is a skeletal dysplasia that is characterized by short stature, short hands and feet, typical facial dysmorphism, normal mental development, and characteristic hand radiology. Carpal tunnel syndrome may be seen in adults with acromicric dysplasia; however, to the authors' knowledge, it has not been reported in pediatric patients. This article describes a 9-year old boy with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and acromicric dysplasia treated operatively. No recurrences occurred during 1 year of postoperative follow-up.
