The posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) is the terminal branch of the radial nerve. The symptoms of PIN palsy vary markedly according to its types. In this report, we present the case of a 61-years-old male patient with an unusual manifestation of non-traumatic novel type of PIN palsy. A complicated course was involved in the diagnosis of this disease. The operation was performed after verification of PIN palsy. Recovery of symptoms was observed in a follow-up conducted three years later. Additionally, the electromyography examination returned to normal.
