We discuss the clinical and electromyographic characteristics of six patients presenting with the clinical picture of PTS following COVID-19 vaccination. All patients were referred to electromyographic studies to determine the acute onset of pain in the shoulder/upper limb, followed by muscle weakness in the distribution of one or two branches of the brachial plexus. Each patient had received the COVID-19 vaccine within a few weeks prior to symptoms development. In two patients, upper trunk plexopathy in 2 patients, lower trunk plexopathy in 1 patient, posterior cord brachial plexopathy in 1 patient, and anterior/posterior interosseous nerve involvement in 2 patients were found in 2 patients. Three patients did not have any improvement in arm/hand weakness, though 3 patients did have some improvement, although three others did have some improvement in strength, while three others did have some improvement in strength. PTS may have occurred after the COVID-19 vaccine, and it should be suspected in patients with onset and signs of acute brachial plexopathy.

Negative pressure wound therapy is a postoperative wound healing therapy approach that has recently emerged as a new field of research in hip and knee osteoarthroplasty. We report the successful treatment of wound dehiscence and infection following THA in a case of Marfan syndrome by closed-incision negative-pressure wound therapy.

A 50-year-old athletic male was shown with poverty, inflammation, unilateral phrenic paralysis, and unilateral phrenic paralysis, followed by bilateral phrenic paralysis with deep dyspnea in 2012. Herpes immune genetic deficiency was detected by a survey of his global serological anti-Herpes immunity to analyze his antibody levels. The parsonage-Turner syndrome's hypothesis of the inductive role of viruses of the herpes family was then backed up. In the family lineage, herpes were still under surveillance: in fact, his daughter introduced changes of her serological herpes Ab levels:.

Abstract Background The neurologic manifestations of Sars-CoV-2 infection have been reported since March 2020 and include both central and peripheral nervous system manifestations. Less is known in connection with peripheral nerve injury related to Sars-CoV-2 infection. Case report The case of a 47-year-old female suffering from a unilateral chest pain radiating to the left arm continued for more than two months after recovery from Sars-CoV-2 infection. She was diagnosed with unilateral, atypical, pure sensory brachial plexus neuritis possibly related to COVID-19, which occurred during the acute phase of a mild Sars-CoV-2 disease and persists for months after recovery. Clinicians and health care professionals are still struggling with the administration of COVID-19 and its long-term effects.

Parsonage-Turner syndrome, or neuralgic amyotrophy, is a common plexus neuritis that presents unilateral shoulder pain and amyotrophy, but can also affect other peripheral nerves, including the recurrent laryngeal nerve.

Chikungunya fever is a mosquito-borne viral disease characterized by acute fever and polyarthritis/polyarthralgia. Patient concerns: A 54-year-old Brazilian male patient with a 2-day history of fever, arthralgia, erythematous rash, diffuse osteomuscular pain, and headache, which progressed to left shoulder pain associated with morning stiffness. Diagnosis: Parsonage-Turner syndrome and chikungunya fever are the cause of parsonage-Turner syndrome and chikungunya fever. Lessons: There were no reports of Parsonage-Turner syndrome following chikungunya virus infection, to the best of our knowledge. The present case report reveals the importance of recognizing this association as a new source of morbidity among patients with chikungunya virus infection.

Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, also known as brachial neuritis or neuralgic amyotrophy, is a rare condition that affects 2 to 3 people per 100,000 annually. Our article explores unusual occurrence of Parsonage-Turner Syndrome in a patient suffering from concurrent Hashimoto Thyroiditis. The patient could not make a complete fist or make u201cOk sign u201d with her thumb and distal phalanx, or even form a solid fist on physical examination, indicating a lack of the median nerve's anterior interosseous branch. In addition, laboratory findings revealed elevated levels of anti-thyroglobulin and anti-thyroid perse antibodies in our patient, who was then hospitalized with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. This case report, we hope to contribute to the growing body of evidence comparing PTS and autoimmune diseases by shedding light on brachial neuritis in a patient suffering from autoimmune connective tissue disease.

Parsonageu2013Turner syndrome is an acute peripheral neuropathy that affects the upper brachial plexus region. In three other patients who were vaccinated against coronavirus disease in 2019, Parsonageu2013Turner syndrome has already been identified in three others. Case presentation We present the case of a 51-year-old Caucasian man without comorbidities who was given the first dose of the ChAdOx1-S recombinant vaccine against coronavirus disease 2019 and was diagnosed with Parsonageu2013Turner syndrome. The patient reported a gradual increase in pain in the area of vaccination administration just a few days after being vaccinated. The shoulder pains were accompanied by signs of hypoesthesia and muscle weakness on abduction and leg elevation, which were a month later. Electroneuromyography, which was carried out 3 months after the onset of symptoms, showed signs consistent with brachial plexus neuritis.

Parsonageu2013Turner syndrome, a rare inflammatory disorder of the brachial plexus, is characterized by the rapid onset of intense arm and/or shoulder pain, muscle pain, and sensory abnormalities. This supports IVIG and glucocorticoids in the treatment of NA, but it also shows the need for further research into whether this combined therapy regimen can speed recovery and improve long-term results for patients with NA.
