Caption: Muscle wasting. Hand of a 71 year old man showing wasting (left) of muscles in the hand due to ulnar neuritis. This results from damage to the ulnar nerve, which controls movement of the fingers and thumb. The bones appear unusually prominent due to loss of muscle tissue between them, with the large muscle at the base of the thumb (thenar prominence) being especially affected.
