It can occur on any finger of the hand but most often it occurs on the thumb (30% – 60%), followed by the index, the middle finger and occasionally the little finger. The ejected finger may be an acquired or a congenital clinical entity.

What is the carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that deteriorates over time. It is caused by the pressure applied to the median nerve as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve passes through the forearm reaching the hand, moving through certain anatomical passages which in particular cases exert pressure on the nerve. It is more common in women than in men.
