Reported here is a 12-year-old girl who suffered numbness and weakness in her right hand. She was diagnosed to have a right-sided radial nerve injury proximal to the supinator muscle. To the best knowledge of the authors, this is the first report of a child with radial nerve entrapment due to intense knitting. (C) 2008 European Paediatric Neurology Society.
