Posterior interosseous nerve(PIN) syndrome is an entrapment of the deep branch of the radial nerve just distal to the elbow joint. It is caused by acute trauma or masses compressing the nerve. We report an unusual case of PIN syndrome with wrist drop caused by compression of the nerve by anomalous vascular leash. The patient has recovered with the surgical decompression of the offending vessels and arcade of Frohse.
