This paper is the last of three articles that describe the functional anatomy of the upper limb. It extends the series by presenting the axial anatomy of the forearm and hand. In addition, it provides a table that defines the patterns of muscle denervation specific to six representative sites. This set of articles is clinically useful because it can be used to rapidly identify and describe the innervation of the muscles and skin of the upper limb.
