Traumatic Brachial Plexus Root Avulsion with Pseudomeningocele
We report a case of a 29 year old gentleman with history of motor bike accident leading to right sided C4, C6 & C8 transverse process fracture. With clinical suspicion of brachial plexus injury, initial USG neck was performed which revealed the diffuse edema, resolving hematoma along the right brachial plexus with pseudomeningocele formation. Subsequent MRI of brachial plexus showed pseudomeningocele formation resulting from the avulsion of right C7 and C8 nerve roots. The aim of this report is to highlight the uncommon condition, report of key clinical findings and management strategies.
