Neuralgic amyotrophy is a disorder of the peripheral nervous system characterized by severe and sudden-onset forequarter region pain and forequarter muscle weakness and wasting. Although most neuralgic amyotrophy patients only experience a single event, multiple bouts (ie, recurrences) occur in approximately 12% of patients. They may involve the same limb or the contralateral limb, and they may involve the same nerves or have a different distribution of nerve involvement.
