INTRODUCTION: Chronic pain in rheumatology often has a psychic impact, which may aggravate the daily life of patients. Chronic neck pain, as an example, is a frequent reason for consultation. The aim of this study is to assess the prevalence of anxiety and depression in patients with neck pain, and identify risk factors associated with their occurrence. METHODS: It was a cross-sectional study that concerned 80 patients with neck pain lasting for more than 3 months, seen in rheumatology consultations...

We report a case of allergic reaction after total cervical disc arthroplasty. A 52-year old woman was operated on for right C6 cervicobrachial neuralgia secondary to C5-C6 disc disease with foraminal stenosis. A cobalt-chromium-molybdenum total disc prosthesis had been implanted two years earlier. The patient was referred to our institution for recurrence of axial neck pain associated with abdominal patches of erythematous itching rash and swallowing disorder. Allergy tests confirmed type-4 allergic reaction to chromium...

OBJECTIVES: To describe all the CT findings after in situ contrast injection just before steroid injection and to recognize the abnormal aspects associated with intravascular contamination. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated 248 cervical transforaminal steroid injections done at the university hospital in Dijon, France, in 2008-2012, to treat cervicobrachial neuralgia inadequately improved by optimal medical treatment for at least 3 weeks. Features describing the opacification patterns were recorded...

Total disc replacement (TDR) (partial disc replacement will not be described) has been used in the lumbar spine since the 1980s, and more recently in the cervical spine. Although the biomechanical concepts are the same and both are inserted through an anterior approach, lumbar TDR is conventionally indicated for chronic low back pain, whereas cervical TDR is used for soft discal hernia resulting in cervicobrachial neuralgia. The insertion technique must be rigorous, with precise centering in the disc space, taking account of vascular anatomy, which is more complex in the lumbar region, particularly proximally to L5-S1...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Musculoskeletal disorders are frequently met in dentistry. OBJECTIVES: To show the efficiency of rehabilitation and to make correlations among patients' pain levels, their overall health status, and the number of days of work absenteeism. MATERIALS AND METHOD: A total of 390 dentists diagnosed with low back pain, scapulohumeral periarthritis, cervicobrachial neuralgia, hand osteoarthritis, tendinitis or tenosynovitis of the upper limb, carpal tunnel syndrome, spinal deformities and fibromyalgia, were followed in a 2-year prospective study...

Chondrosarcoma is a primary malignant bone tumor. The location in the vertebral bodies is rare. Its diagnosis is difficult and it is confirmed by histopathology. We report two cases of cervical chondrosarcoma in two men aged respectively 70 and 40 years. Symptomatology was cervicobrachial neuralgia and motor deficit. Both patients were operated and the treatment completed by radiotherapy.

BACKGROUND: Cervicobrachial neuralgia (CBN) is frequent in out patient clinic as well in general medicine as in rheumatology. Even though cervical disc degeneration and osteophytosis constitute the most frequent etiology of such a trouble, the practitioner must be aware of much more serious underlying cause. AIM: To investigate the epidemiology, clinical features, aetiologies and paraclinical characteristics of uncommon CBN. METHODS: Retrospective chart review about 17 cases of uncommon CBN among the 84 cases of CBN hospitalized at the rheumatology department of the Charles Nicolle Hospital during a 16-years-period [1990-2005]...

PURPOSE: Prospective study evaluating the efficacy and tolerability of CT guided cervical epidural injections for mechanical cervicobrachial neuralgia. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between July 2003 and August 2004, 34 patients (16 females, 18 males) with mean age of 44.5 years were enrolled. Enrollment criteria included mechanical cervicobrachial neuralgia of more than 1 month's duration, refractory to medical management, with good correlation between clinical and imaging findings...

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) or neurofibrosarcoma, previously described as malignant Schwannoma or neurosarcoma, is an extremely rare cause of malignancy localized in the neck. Half of reported cases occurred in patients with neurofibromatosis in Von Recklinghausen disease type I. Typical features include high grade malignancy and a tendency to recurrence and distant metastases. We report the case of a 56-year-old woman with neurosarcoma of the neck, which was revealed by a cervicobrachial neuralgia...

OBJECTIVES: Despite the high frequency of work-related musculoskeletal disorders, the relation between work conditions and ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow has not been the object of much research. In the present study, the predictive factors for such ulnar nerve entrapment were determined in a 3-year prospective survey of upper-limb work-related musculoskeletal disorders in repetitive work. METHODS: In 1993-1994 and 3 years later, 598 workers whose jobs involved repetitive work underwent an examination by their occupational health physicians and completed a self-administered questionnaire...
