    Only a few cases of palmaris profundus have been reported in the English-language literature. The palmaris profundus is a rare anomalous muscle of the forearm that may cause carpal tunnel syndrome. We describe the first case of bilateral palmaris profundus associated with bilateral palmaris longus causing bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome.
