Neuralgic amyotrophy or brachial plexus neuralgia is a condition of uncertain etiology. It needs to be differentiated from the usual brachial plexus injuries. Nerves outside the plexus especially the spinal accessory nerve are involved. Neuralgia is also a feature. Four cases were followed-up in detail over a period of two years. The condition usually resolves almost completely on its own.
