A syndrome associated with inflammation of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical features include severe pain in the shoulder region which may be accompanied by MUSCLE WEAKNESS and loss of sensation in the upper extremity. This condition may be associated with VIRUS DISEASES; IMMUNIZATION; SURGERY; heroin use (see HEROIN DEPENDENCE); and other conditions. The term brachial neuralgia generally refers to pain associated with brachial plexus injury. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1355-6)
The large network of nerve fibers which distributes the innervation of the upper extremity. The brachial plexus extends from the neck into the axilla. In humans, the nerves of the plexus usually originate from the lower cervical and the first thoracic spinal cord segments (C5-C8 and T1), but variations are not uncommon.
Diseases of the cervical (and first thoracic) roots, nerve trunks, cords, and peripheral nerve components of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS. Clinical manifestations include regional pain, PARESTHESIA; MUSCLE WEAKNESS, and decreased sensation (HYPESTHESIA) in the upper extremity. These disorders may be associated with trauma (including BIRTH INJURIES); THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME; NEOPLASMS; NEURITIS; RADIOTHERAPY; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1351-2)
Inflammation of the optic nerve. Commonly associated conditions include autoimmune disorders such as MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, infections, and granulomatous diseases. Clinical features include retro-orbital pain that is aggravated by eye movement, loss of color vision, and contrast sensitivity that may progress to severe visual loss, an afferent pupillary defect (Marcus-Gunn pupil), and in some instances optic disc hyperemia and swelling. Inflammation may occur in the portion of the nerve within the globe (neuropapillitis or anterior optic neuritis) or the portion behind the globe (retrobulbar neuritis or posterior optic neuritis).
A general term indicating inflammation of a peripheral or cranial nerve. Clinical manifestation may include PAIN; PARESTHESIAS; PARESIS; or HYPESTHESIA.
An experimental animal model for the demyelinating disease of GUILLAINE-BARRE SYNDROME. In the most frequently used protocol, animals are injected with a peripheral nerve tissue protein homogenate. After approximately 2 weeks the animals develop a neuropathy secondary to a T cell-mediated autoimmune response directed towards the MYELIN P2 PROTEIN in peripheral nerves. Pathologic findings include a perivascular accumulation of macrophages and T lymphocytes in the peripheral nervous system, similar to that seen in the Guillaine-Barre syndrome.

Glioma derived from EPENDYMOGLIAL CELLS that tend to present as malignant intracranial tumors in children and as benign intraspinal neoplasms in adults. It may arise from any level of the ventricular system or central canal of the spinal cord. Intracranial ependymomas most frequently originate in the FOURTH VENTRICLE and histologically are densely cellular tumors which may contain ependymal tubules and perivascular pseudorosettes. Spinal ependymomas are usually benign papillary or myxopapillary tumors.

Long-term recovery of diaphragm strength in neuralgic amyotrophy. (1/52)

Diaphragm paralysis is a recognized complication of neuralgic amyotrophy that causes severe dyspnoea. Although recovery of strength in the arm muscles, when affected, is common, there are little data on recovery of diaphragm function. This study, therefore, re-assessed diaphragm strength in cases of bilateral diaphragm paralysis due to neuralgic amyotrophy that had previously been diagnosed at the authors institutions. Fourteen patients were recalled between 2 and 11 yrs after the original diagnosis. Respiratory muscle and diaphragm strength were measured by volitional manoeuvres as maximal inspiratory pressure and sniff transdiaphragmatic pressure. Cervical magnetic phrenic nerve stimulation was used to give a nonvolitional measure of diaphragm strength: twitch transdiaphragmatic pressure. Only two patients remained severely breathless. Ten of the 14 patients had evidence of some recovery of diaphragm strength, in seven cases to within 50% of the lower limit of normal. The rate of recovery was variable: one patient had some recovery after 2 yrs, and the rest took 3 yrs or more. In conclusion, in most patients with diaphragm paralysis due to neuralgic amyotrophy, some recovery of the diaphragm strength occurs, but the rate of recovery may be slow.  (+info)

Motor root conduction in neuralgic amyotrophy: evidence of proximal conduction block. (2/52)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the presence and role of proximal conduction block in neuralgic amyotrophy. METHODS: Percutaneous electrical stimulation of cervical roots and brachial plexus was employed in eight patients with neuralgic amyotrophy. Root to Erb's point compound muscle action potential amplitude ratios for abductor digiti minimi, extensor digitorum communis, biceps, and deltoid muscles were compared with results obtained from 10 healthy controls. RESULTS: Conduction block in the nerve to one muscle was found in three of eight patients (38%) suggesting focal proximal demyelination. Repeat studies showed axonal degeneration, resolution, and persistence of conduction block in these three patients respectively. CONCLUSION: Focal conduction block plays a significant part in the pathogenesis of neuralgic amyotrophy, which is generally regarded as an axon loss process. Therapeutic intervention should be directed to patients with persistent conduction block, with the aim of eradicating the block and possibly minimising subsequent axon loss.  (+info)

Genetic refinement of the hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) locus at chromosome 17q25. (3/52)

Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) is an autosomal dominant, recurrent focal neuropathy. HNA is characterised by episodes of painful brachial plexus neuropathy with muscle weakness and atrophy, as well as sensory disturbances. Single episodes are commonly preceded by non-specific infections, immunisations or parturition. Mild dysmorphic features and short stature are present in some HNA families, but absolute co-segregation with HNA has not been described. To refine the previously described HNA locus on chromosome 17q25, we performed a genetic linkage study in five HNA families with different geographic origins. Significant linkage was obtained with chromosome 17q24-q25 short tandem repeat (STR) markers in three HNA families and suggestive linkage was found in the other two HNA families. Analysis of the informative recombinations in affected individuals allowed us to reduce the HNA linkage interval to a candidate region of 3.5 cM.  (+info)

The natural history of hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy in the Dutch population: two distinct types? (4/52)

On investigation of 101 attacks in 24 patients with hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) from nine different families, we found that HNA can run two distinct courses: a 'classic' relapsing-remitting and a chronic undulating type with exacerbations. Only one type occurred per family, suggesting genetic heterogeneity. This is supported by the finding that only in a family with 'classic type' HNA are data of linkage analysis compatible with linkage to the 17q24-q25 interval which harbours a locus for the disease. The average number of attacks per patient during a follow-up of 26 years was four in the classic form of HNA and five in the chronic undulating type. All patients suffered from residual symptoms on follow-up, with a median Rankin score of 2 in both groups, showing that long-term prognosis is less favourable than previously reported.  (+info)

Neuralgic amyotrophy as a presenting feature of infective endocarditis. (5/52)

A 35 year old man presented to his general practitioner with severe right shoulder pain and subsequent weakness and wasting of the muscles in the affected shoulder girdle three weeks after a dental filling. His symptoms persisted despite standard treatment. He developed malaise, night sweats, weight loss, a petechial rash and a microcytic anaemia. On admission to hospital three months after the start of his symptoms he had also developed splenomegaly and the murmur of aortic regurgitation. Investigations confirmed the diagnoses of infective endocarditis and neuralgic amyotrophy. In this case neuralgic amyotrophy appears to have been the presenting feature of infective endocarditis. This association has not previously been described.  (+info)

Acute brachial plexus neuritis: an uncommon cause of shoulder pain. (6/52)

Patients with acute brachial plexus neuritis are often misdiagnosed as having cervical radiculopathy. Acute brachial plexus neuritis is an uncommon disorder characterized by severe shoulder and upper arm pain followed by marked upper arm weakness. The temporal profile of pain preceding weakness is important in establishing a prompt diagnosis and differentiating acute brachial plexus neuritis from cervical radiculopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging of the shoulder and upper arm musculature may reveal denervation within days, allowing prompt diagnosis. Electromyography, conducted three to four weeks after the onset of symptoms, can localize the lesion and help confirm the diagnosis. Treatment includes analgesics and physical therapy, with resolution of symptoms usually occurring in three to four months. Patients with cervical radiculopathy present with simultaneous pain and neurologic deficits that fit a nerve root pattern. This differentiation is important to avoid unnecessary surgery for cervical spondylotic changes in a patient with a plexitis.  (+info)

Outcome of cervical spine surgery in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. (7/52)

OBJECTIVES: Cervical spine instability in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may lead to cervical myelopathy or occipital neuralgia, or both. Morbidity and mortality in patients with RA treated with cervical spine surgery during two years of follow up were evaluated. METHODS: Between 1992 and 1996 55 patients with RA underwent cervical spine surgery because of occipital neuralgia or cervical myelopathy, or both. Patients were classified according to the Ranawat criteria for pain and neurological assessment before operation and three months and two years postoperatively. For occipital neuralgia a successful operation was defined as complete relief of pain and for cervical myelopathy as neurological improvement. RESULTS: Occipital neuralgia was present in 17 patients, cervical myelopathy in 14 patients, and 24 had both. Surgical treatment in the patients with symptoms of occipital neuralgia who were still alive two years after surgery was successful in 18/29 (62%). In the surviving patients with cervical myelopathy neurological improvement of at least one Ranawat class was seen in 16/24 (67%). Postoperative mortality within six weeks was 3/51 (6%). Within two years after the operation 14 /51 (27%) of the patients had died; in most patients the cause of death was not related to surgery. The highest mortality (50%) was found in the group of six patients with quadriparesis and very poor functional capacity (Ranawat IIIB). CONCLUSION: Cervical spine surgery in patients with RA performed because of occipital neuralgia or cervical myelopathy, or both, is successful in most patients who are alive two years after surgery. However, the mortality rate during these two years is relatively high, which seems to be largely related to the severity of the underlying disease and not to the surgery itself.  (+info)

Idiopathic brachial neuritis. (8/52)

Idiopathic brachial neuritis is a well defined clinical condition that most commonly affects young adults, seen usually by primary care physicians, neurologists or orthopaedic surgeons. Its onset is characterized by acute, aching shoulder pain lasting a few days to weeks, followed by progressive shoulder girdle and upper extremity weakness and atrophy, with a slow but progressive recovery of motor function over 6 to 18 months. Its early recognition can help avoid unnecessary and potentially harmful diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, and avoid delays in prescribing appropriate therapies that may be helpful only early in the course of the disease. We present a case of idiopathic brachial neuritis and discuss important aspects of the disease and difficulties in reaching the correct diagnosis.  (+info)

Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy is a type of nervous system disease that affects the brachial plexus. Common signs and symptoms include episodes of severe pain and muscle wasting in one or both shoulders and arms. Attacks may be spontaneous or triggered (e.g., by exercise, childbirth, surgery, infection etc.). Secondary complications, such as decreased sensation, abnormal sensations (e.g., numbness and tingling), chronic pain, and impaired movement may develop overtime. Affected members in some families may share additional distinct physical and facial characteristics. Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy can be caused by mutations in the SEPT9 gene. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion ...
Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy (HNA) is an autosomal dominant recurrent neuropathy affecting the brachial plexus. HNA is triggered by environmental factors such as infection or parturition.

Introduction: Effective treatment for neuralgic amyotrophy (NA), a disabling brachial plexus syndrome of supposed immuno-mediated origin, is currently lacking. Given the circumstantial evidence of a beneficial effect of prednisolone on pain and paresis, this report evaluates the effects of prednisolone treatment administered in the acute phase in a retrospective case series of 50 NA patients.. Methods: Baseline variables (e.g. age, sex, type of NA, and number of attacks), treatment variables (e.g. time until treatment, regimen, and use of analgesics), and outcome measures (e.g. duration and severity of pain, time course and severity of paresis, and functional outcome) were statistically analyzed and compared to an historical control group of 203 untreated NA patients.. Results: The baseline characteristics of the two patient groups were comparable. Median time until initial pain relief was lower in the study group (12.5 days vs. 20.5 days) and a significantly higher percentage already recovered ...
Background:Monomelic Amyotrophy is a rare self-limiting motor neuron disease affecting anterior horn cells of spinal cord. It usually has a juvenile onset, male predominance, single upper limb involvement (although bilateral asymmetric or even symmetric involvement has been reported) and is usually described in India and Far-East Asia with few reports from North America. Case Report:A North-American Hispanic female with monomelic amyotrophy simultaneously involving the right upper and the left lower extremities with unusual sequence of muscle involvement in the lower limb, namely involving only the anterior and medial compartments of the thigh. Conclusions:Although monomelic amyotrophy has several well known phenotypes or patterns of muscular involvement in certain races or geographical distribution, unusual or unreported presentations and topography of muscular involvement may still be possible and the disease should be considered regardless the race and geographical area.
A significant proportion of patients with neuralgic amyotrophy also report a preceding infection, but no single infective agent predominates. A study of two cohorts of patients from the UK and the Netherlands found that 10% of patients had acute HEV infection.23 The UK cases were retrospectively identified, but those in the Dutch group were from a prospective trial of corticosteroid therapy. All were anicteric, had mildly elevated liver function tests (in some cases they were normal), and in all but one case, HEV RNA (genotype 3) was found in the serum. All were locally acquired infections, without a clear source of infection. There have now been over 30 cases of HEV-associated neuralgic amyotrophy reported in the literature, mostly from Europe.24 The clinical phenotype of HEV-associated neuralgic amyotrophy appears to be a bilateral disorder in middle-aged men, affecting any part of the brachial plexus in a patchy manner. Some patients have lumbosacral and phrenic nerve involvement. The outcome ...

Phrenic neuropathies (PN) are an important cause of dyspnoea, orthopnoea and hypercapnic respiratory failure. However, there is no agreement on the nosology of this disorder. The aim of this cohort study was to analyze the authors and published PN patients and compare them with other immune-mediated focal neuropathies to determine the most appropriate nomenclature and classification of the disorder. All patients with PN referred to the author from March 2004 to March 2013 were included. In addition, to identify previously published patients with PN, a PubMed search was done. The demographic and clinical characteristics of both series were then compared with the published series of neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) patients. Of 19 PN patients from the authors series, 11 % fulfilled the criteria for definite and 58 % for probable NA; while in 58 previous patients, the values were 16 and 48 %, respectively. PN and NA both have a male preponderance and a frequent history of preceding events, but PN occur ...

Anterior interosseous syndrome or Kiloh-Nevin syndrome I is a medical condition in which damage to the anterior interosseous nerve (AIN), a motor branch of the median nerve, causes pain in the forearm and a characteristic weakness of the pincer movement of the thumb and index finger. Most cases of AIN syndrome are due to a transient neuritis, although compression of the AIN can happen. Trauma to the median nerve have also been reported as a cause of AIN syndrome. Although there is still controversy among upper extremity surgeons, AIN syndrome is now regarded as a neuritis (inflammation of the nerve) in most cases; this is similar to Parsonage-Turner syndrome. Although the exact etiology is unknown, there is evidence that it is caused by an immune mediated response. Studies are limited, and no randomized controlled trials have been performed regarding the treatment of AIN syndrome. While the natural history of AIN syndrome is not fully understood, studies following patients who have been treated ...

There is limited information on the underlying pathological alterations in HBPN. Upper extremity nerve biopsies are not reported. Bradley et al, studying recurrent brachial plexus neuropathy, found focal sausage shaped thickenings of reduplicated myelin (tomaculi) in sural nerve biopsies from two patients with lower extremity involvement and a family history.14 Our patients did not have tomaculi or deletion of 17p11.2, the genetic alteration seen in HNPP (tomaculous neuropathy) (tables 1 and 2). The prominent perivascular epineurial inflammatory infiltrate observed in two of our four patients has also been described in non-inherited immune brachial plexus neuropathy.2,3,4 The severity and the epineurial, perivascular, and vascular wall localisation of the inflammation makes it unlikely that the inflammation is a reaction to fibre degeneration. Two of our patients with HBPN had prominent axonal degeneration, while those without inflammation had minimal or no neuropathic changes. The absence of ...

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICPIs) are monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) used to treat patients with advanced malignancies improving overall survival. However, in unleashing the immune system there are risks for developing immune-related adverse events (irAEs), including numerous neuromusculoskeletal complications. These include: Guillain Barre syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, myasthenia gravis, myositis, encephalitis and brachial plexus neuritis. As the use of ICPIs increases, it will be crucial for the rehabilitation team to be knowledgeable of the potential neuromusculoskeletal complications in order to properly identify and coordinate treatment for patients ...
An injury in which the network of nerves that sends signals from your spine to your shoulder, arm, and hand are stretched, compressed, or in the most serious cases, torn away from the spinal cord.
Quadrilateral space syndrome or quadrangular space syndrome is a rotator cuff denervation syndrome in which the axillary nerve is compressed at the quadrilateral space of the rotator cuff. Diagnosis is usually suspected by clinical history and confirmed by MRI, in which edema of the teres minor is seen, with variable involvement of the deltoid. The circumflex humeral artery may also be compressed. Before the advent of MRI, compression of this vessel on angiography used to be the mechanism of diagnosis, although this is no longer done as it is an invasive procedure. Atrophy can occur in cases of chronic nerve impingement. It can be associated with a glenoid labral cyst, with the cyst also reflecting injury of the glenoid labrum. Differential considerations include similar rotator cuff denervation syndromes such as Parsonage-Turner syndrome, and compression of the suprascapular nerve at the spinoglenoid notch in which the infraspinatus, and to a lesser degree supraspinatus is involved.

Ive just read this thread and I wanted to offer another suggestion - Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I just started seeing a dr. of Chinese medicine Feb / March of last year. She was recommended to me by my massage therapist when nothing I was doing for all of my conditions was working. An overall mess with IBS, Chiari, chronic migraines, and brachial neuritis (nerve damage), Dr. D has been a life saver. She works on healing the whole body and balancing my Qi (chi). One of the things she works on with acupuncture and herbs is my spleen function. Apparently my spleen was unhappy because when I started the happy spleen tonic herbs, things really started turning around!! Im feeling better IBS-wise than I have in YEARS. Yes the diet and hypno helped TONS. But the Chinese medicine has been the icing on the cake. Ive even managed to gain 5 or 6 lbs ...

Mayo Clinic: Diabetic Neuropathy, Foot drop, Meralgia paresthetica. Most of the time, diabetic neuropathy happens in the legs and feet. Diabetic amyotrophy is also known by these names: In general, people with diabetic neuropathy have pain and numbness. The main features are weakness, wasting and pain, usually in the quadriceps. Initial symptoms are followed by muscle wasting and slowed or absent reflexes. This condition has been reported in the literature over many decades. Recovery can be prolonged and unpredictable. Your doctor will probably want to rule out problems like: Your doctor may do some of these tests to find the cause of your symptoms: Diabetic amyotrophy often gets better on its own over time. Patients complain of pain (often severe), dysaesthesiae and paraesthesiae in the proximal lower limbs - usually the front of the thigh, hip or buttock. Alternately referred to as lumbosacral radiculoplexus neuropathy, femoral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathic cachexia, or diabetic ...

First of all, thank you for your kind condolences. Yes, my brother was fit, lean and vibrant when he went in for a tetanus shot. (I understand that those are now given in TDap.) Within days of the shot, he felt weakness come over him, and as it became worse he went back to the doctor and was subsequently diagnosed with ALS. I had already done research and was aware of a 1967 BMJ article reporting vaccines of all kinds, plus tetanus shots and gamma globulin shots causing various auto-immune diseases, although the main focus was on multiple sclerosis. A friend of mine also had a severe reaction to a gamma globulin shot and was then diagnosed with MS, back in 1975.

What can I expect if I undergo cervical RFA?. The medial branch nerves commonly contribute to arthritic pain in the back and neck. They run course across the superficial bones of the spine and are referred to. Before we ablate them, we confirm that these nerves are, indeed, the source of the pain you experience.. This is done by means of a medial branch block (MBB), a simple injection of lidocaine that numbs the nerves and serves as a diagnostic tool. This can be performed under light anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure.. The lidocaine may only be effective for several hours, but this is all we need to diagnose the source of the pain. If the patient feels a significant sense of relief, weve now confirmed which nerves should be targeted by the longer-lasting RFA.. The ablation itself, is an outpatient procedure that takes no more than an hour to complete. Your doctor uses a local numbing medicine on your neck but can also administer a mild IV or oral anesthetic to keep you ...

Andermann syndrome is a disorder that damages the nerves used for muscle movement and sensation (motor and sensory neuropathy). Absence (agenesis) or malformation of the tissue connecting the left and right halves of the brain (corpus callosum) also occurs in most people with this disorder.. People affected by Andermann syndrome have abnormal or absent reflexes (areflexia) and weak muscle tone (hypotonia). They experience muscle wasting (amyotrophy), severe progressive weakness and loss of sensation in the limbs, and rhythmic shaking (tremors). They typically begin walking between ages 3 and 4 and lose this ability by their teenage years. As they get older, people with this disorder frequently develop joint deformities called contractures, which restrict the movement of certain joints. Most affected individuals also develop abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis), which may require surgery.. Andermann syndrome also results in abnormal function of certain cranial nerves, which emerge directly ...

The main factors that affect tw,Pmo are magnitude of stimulation, quality of electrical input transmission, initial length of diaphragmatic fibres, and ability to generate a force in response to a stimulus. To minimize variations in the magnitude of stimulation, great care was taken to ensure optimal positioning of the coil on the neck. Similowski et al. 15 suggested that the EMG should be used to determine whether CMS is supramaximal. Consequently, the site was marked and the power output of the stimulator where the tw,Pmo and M-wave responses were maximal was noted, and then this site and this power was used for subsequent stimulations. Careful attention was given to standardization of the posture of the subjects. Since there is general agreement that transmission fatigue does not occur during exercise in normal humans 16 and given the constancy of the EMG data during each test, it can be assumed that CMS was maximal and constant.. Evaluation of diaphragm strength by measurement of tw,Pmo ...
