Anterior interosseous nerve (AIN) neuropraxia, also known as anterior interosseous syndrome, presents clinically as the inability to flex the distal phalanges of the thumb and index finger as well as possible weakness in pronation, all resulting from the paralysis of flexor pollicis longus (FPL), flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) to the index finger, and pronator quadratus (PQ).
