Abstract
We report a case of neuropathy induced by vibration and compression in the hand of a dental hygienist. Her hand function was improved considerably by repeated treatment during which EMLA(R) cream (EMLA(R) cream is a local anaesthetic agent containing lidocain 2.5% and priolocain 2.5%) was applied to the forearm to induce cutaneous anaesthesia.
