BACKGROUND: Brachioradial pruritus is a rare form of pruritus localised to one or more brachioradial dermatomes, initially classified as a photodermatosis but which in fact is generally brought on by nervous compression. We report a case of a brachioradial pruritus revealing an intramedullary tumour. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A 53-year-old man had presented pruritus for seven years under the left clavicle, then on the left forearm followed by the right forearm.

The diagnosis of Charcot's joints should be considered in anyone who develops what appears to be a severe osteoarthritis or a transverse fracture of the tibia or fibula after minor trauma.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the use of scapular shoulder movement as a command control source. The focus of this study was on the evaluation of movement signals from quadriplegic subjects as well as on the processing of these signals for use as command inputs to a functional neuromuscular stimulation (FNS) hand-grasp system. The shoulder movement of three C5-level quadriplegic and nine normal subjects was studied using externally mounted two-degree-of-freedom transducers overlying the sternum and clavicles...
