This study aimed to assess the validity and reliability of the Malay version of the Boston Carpal Tunnel Questionnaire (M-BCTQ). A cross-sectional study was used to generate the final version of M-BCTQ that administered to 55 patients for psychometric testing. M-BCTQ had excellent test-retest reliability with ICCs value 0.837 for SSS and 0.913 for FSS. The Cronbach alpha coefficient for the internal consistencies was reported at 0.864 for SSS and 0.893 for the FSS. A strong correlation was found with the MVDASH, as Spearman correlation for construct validity was 0.791 for SSS and 0.831 for FSS. M-BCTQ has been developed and shown excellent validity and reliability suitable for among Malay speaking patients with CTS.
