What is de Quervain syndrome?

De Quervain syndrome, also known as radial styloid tenosynovitis, occurs when the tendons that move the thumb outward (away from the index finger) become painful and swollen (tenosynovitis), most commonly from the irritation caused by repetitive gripping and twisting motions.
