Dr. Soren Singel answered:

What viruses can cause brachial neuritis? Fever x1 week then left shoulder pain x1 week then left arm weakness. MD believes caused by virus. Agree?

Parsonage Turner

Neuritis
The brachial plexus painful paralysis may not be a direct virus infection of the nerves, but as a consequence of an immune attack. Upper respiratory virus infection - your immune system mounts an attack - and (by accident) attacks molecules in your brachial plexus myelin sheath. ("Collateral damage" so to speak.) The condition is called Parsonage Turner syndrome. Pls discuss with your MD.

What is a brachial plexus injury like?

Arm paralysis.

Open-uri20120819-11827-1n05maf
Brachial plexus injuries (usually congenital) are serious morbid conditions resulting from trauma on the nerves travelling from the neck to the arm. They cause permanent paralysis of the affected arm. Physical therapy can help. Fortunately, this complication occurs very rarely even in cases of shoulder dystocia; its overall incidence is 0.04 to 0.2% of live births.

Are brachial plexus injuries hereditary?

No

Open-uri20121113-31780-1bwkhwp
The cervical plexus can be stretched during delivery.After the head is out, it is pulled forward & angled up or down to get the shoulders & rest of baby out.If the plexus responds with swelling around the nerves,transient loss of function(dys/wks) may be found.If the nerves are damaged by the stretch, nerves may be permanently damaged.This is birth trauma any kid could get.It is not hereditary.
