Parsonage-Turner syndrome (PTS) is a relatively rare cause of upper extremity weakness and pain. There is currently no effective treatment for PTS although corticosteroids are recommended. Here we report the case of a man with acute PTS and exceptional involvement of both saphenous nerves, advantageously treated with intravenous immunoglobulin.

Abstract

Parsonage-Turner syndrome (PTS) is a relatively rare cause of upper extremity weakness and pain. There is currently no effective treatment for PTS although corticosteroids are recommended. Here we report the case of a man with acute PTS and exceptional involvement of both saphenous nerves, advantageously treated with intravenous immunoglobulin.
