In brief: Nerve compression

Cubital tunnel syndrome is due to compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow.
Symptoms include numbness/tingling in the small and ulnar half of the ring finger, pain, and hand weakness. Extreme elbow flexion and pressure on the medial (inside) part of the elbow can exacerbate symptoms. Treatment consists of therapy, oral/injectable steroids and surgery to release and/or move the ulnar nerve.
