Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are not limited to the liver but may also affect other organs. Several diseases, including Guillain-Barré syndrome, neuralgic amyotrophy, glomerulonephritis, cryoglobulinemia, pancreatitis, lymphoma, thrombopenia, meningitis, thyreoiditis and myocarditis have been observed in the context of hepatitis E. To date the definite pathophysiological links between HEV and extrahepatic manifestations are not yet established. However, it is suggested that HEV-infection might be causative based on serological studies, case series, in vitro data and animal models...

INTRODUCTION: We assessed medical and surgical causes of unilateral trapezius muscle (TM) palsy and/or wasting. METHODS: Clinical and electrodiagnostic data were collected in 54 patients with TM impairment over 21 years. RESULTS: In total, 35 cases had a medical origin: neuralgic amyotrophy (NA, n=22), idiopathic unilateral TM palsy (n=5), regional neck radiotherapy for different conditions (n=2), facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSH) (n=4), abnormal loop of the jugular vein (n=1), or basilar impression (n=1)...

Hepatitis E is an emerging viral infection in developed countries. It can present with multiple extra-hepatic manifestations, including neuralgic amyotrophy. We report a 52-year-old man who presented with neck and shoulder pain followed by orthopnea and left arm weakness. Electrodiagnostic testing showed left phrenic neuropathy and denervation in bilateral C5 and C6 myotomes. He also had elevated liver enzymes, which led to the diagnosis of acute hepatitis E. This is the first case of neuralgic amyotrophy associated with hepatitis E in the United States...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to gain a better understanding of anterior interosseous nerve and posterior interosseous nerve involvement in neuralgic amyotrophy. METHODS: In a retrospective chart review, 51 cases (49 patients) with anterior and posterior interosseous nerve syndrome were investigated in terms of their symptoms, course of disease, and prognosis. RESULTS: Patients first presented with pain in 52.9% of cases. The location of the pain was distal to the shoulder in most cases (85...

Adult-onset brachial plexopathy can be classified into traumatic and non-traumatic aetiologies. Traumatic brachial plexopathies can affect the pre- or postganglionic segments of the plexus. Non-traumatic brachial plexopathies may be due to neoplasia, radiotherapy, thoracic outlet syndrome and idiopathic neuralgic amyotrophy. Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is useful to localise the area of injury or disease, and identify the likely cause. This review discusses some of the common causes of adult-onset brachial plexopathy and their imaging features on MRI...

INTRODUCTION: Neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) is characterized by acute or subacute onset of shoulder and arm pain, followed by muscle atrophy and weakness, and variable sensory abnormalities. Historically, the site of inflammation has been localized to the brachial plexus, although involvement of individual nerve branches has been well recognized. METHODS: We describe ultrasound (US) findings in 2 cases with clinical presentation suggestive for NA, involving individual peripheral nerves, correlating with clinical and electrophysiological findings...

Metastasis of breast cancer is often detected through a long-term course and difficult to diagnose. We report a case of brachial plexopathy suspected to be the initial lesion of breast cancer metastasis, which was only detected by magnetic resonance (MR) neurography. A 61-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital within 2 years after operation for breast cancer because of progressive dysesthesia and motor weakness initially in the upper limb on the affected side and subsequently on the contralateral side...

INTRODUCTION: The muscles commonly affected by neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) are well known, but the location of the responsible lesions is less clear (plexus versus extraplexus). METHODS: We report the lesion locations in 281 NA patients as determined by extensive electrodiagnostic (EDX) testing. RESULTS: Our 281 patients had 322 bouts of NA, 57 of which were bilateral, for a total of 379 assessable events. A single nerve was involved in 174 (46%), and 205 (54%) were multifocal...

History and initial findings | A patient with bilateral pain in his shoulders is presented at the emergency room. Investigations | There were strongly increased transaminases. Diagnosis | Serology and PCR led to the diagnosis of hepatitis E. Neurological examination revealed a neuralgic amyotrophy Treatment and course | The pain in the shoulders disappeared spontaneously after vanishing of HEV viremia. Conclusion | Patients with shoulder pain of unknown origin and elevated transaminases should be tested for hepatitis E...

Neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) is characterized by sudden onset of severe pain in the shoulder/upper arm and muscle amyotrophy. Up to 60% of patients with NA are misdiagnosed as having shoulder joint pathology or cervical pathology. We report a case of a 13-year-old girl diagnosed with the hereditary form of NA (HNA). Array comparative genomic hybridization showed a maternally inherited duplication of 1.5 Mb including the entire SEPT9-gene. The girl was treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids and physiotherapy...

There are many reasons for an impairment of the diaphragmatic function potentially affecting all components of the respiratory pump. Particularly, diagnosis and treatment of unilateral and bilateral phrenic nerve paralysis are challenging. Neuromuscular disorders, trauma, iatrogenic conditions, tumor compression, but also infectious and inflammatory conditions in addition to neuralgic amyotrophy and idiopathic phrenic nerve paralysis are reasons for phrenic nerve paralysis. Primarily, diagnostic procedures include the anamnesis, physical examination, blood gas analysis, lung function testing and the diagnosis of the underlying disease...

BACKGROUND: Infection with hepatitis E virus genotype 3 (HEV3) is an emerging zoonosis in the industrialized world. The infection usually proceeds asymptomatically. Extrahepatic sequelae including neurological symptoms have been described. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 52-year-old man presented at the emergency department with pain, muscle weakness and sensory disorders in both shoulders and arms. He was found to have bilateral neuralgic amyotrophy accompanying an HEV3 infection...

BACKGROUND: Neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) was first described in 1948. Traditional literature describes a painful attack with sudden onset, followed by paresis, with varied outcomes. Recent studies have suggested NA is currently underdiagnosed. However, a large number of studies detailing NA originate from a small group of sources. Our study compared the onset, diagnosis, investigation, and treatment of all neurologic shoulder conditions to provide comparable data for these studies. METHODS: Data were collected from 60 patients (81...

A century after the first description of neuralgic amyotrophy (NA), its pathophysiology remains unknown. An inflammatory (auto)immune pathophysiology is presumed, with mechanical or infectious precipitating conditions, which triggers attacks. Clinically, NA is an acute and painful unique or multiple mononeuropathy that causes palsy, amyotrophy and sensory loss in an asymmetric and patchy distribution. It involves the upper brachial plexus rather than the other parts but also may involve the cervical plexus, lumbosacral plexus and cranial nerves...

Until recently, hepatitis E virus (HEV) was thought not to occur in developed countries. It is now clear that locally acquired HEV is common in such settings. HEV infection acquired in these areas differs from that in developing countries in a number of important aspects: it is caused by genotype 3 (and 4 in China and Japan), it mainly affects middle-aged/elderly males and it is zoonotic with a porcine primary host. Pig herds worldwide are infected with HEV genotype 3 and HEV has been found in the human food chain in a number of developed countries...

The aim of this paper was to report the effect of temporary and chronic spinal cord stimulation for refractory neuropathic pain in neuralgic amyotrophy (NA). A 35-year-old female presented with two-months history of a severe, relentless neuropathic pain of the left shoulder, forearm, palm, and fingers. The neuropathic pain was refractory to various medical treatments, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, opiates, epidural and stellate ganglion blocks, and typically unrelenting. The diagnosis of NA was made with the characteristic clinical history and magnetic resonance imaging...

Keegan (1965) reported a patient who presented with "dissociated motor loss," an acute paralysis of the upper extremity with minimal sensory signs and no long tract signs, and documented an anterior root lesion following autopsy. Sobue et al. (1975) reported similar cases using the term "cervical spondylotic amyotrophy (CSA)," but postulated pathology of the anterior horn. Although Keegan's "dissociated motor loss" surely referred to isolated motor paresis with no or minimal sensory signs, contrary to existing criticism, a more general term, CSA, should be preferred...
