Neuralgic Amyotrophy, also known as Parsonage-Turner Syndrome (PTS), is a clinically diagnosed and largely under-recognized inflammatory disorder which primarily affects the brachial plexus. Correct diagnosis is often delayed and the disease causes significant patient morbidity due to extreme pain, paresis, and often sensory abnormalities of the upper extremity. Although the pathophysiology is not completely understood, it is classically preceded by an identifiable inciting event and complete recovery may take months to years.
