The superficial branch of the ulnar nerve is a terminal branch of the ulnar nerve. It supplies the palmarisbrevis and the skin on the ulnar side of the hand, and divides into a proper palmar digital nerve and a common palmar digital nerve. In the question above since sensory loss and hypothenar wasting is seen hence it involves whole ulnar nerve before division.
