ABSTRACT
Lateral antabrachial cutaneous neuropathy(LACN) was diagnosed in a 42-year-old woman who developed pain and paresthesia in the forearm after several days of heavy labor. The symptoms were resolved with conservative treatment, including cessation of heavy labor and a brief course of oral corticosteroids. But the symptoms recurred after 9 months. Those were also resolved with same treatment as the first attack. LACN is important to recognize because the symptoms may mimic the pathology of a cervical root, the brachial plexus, the radial and median nerves at the level of the elbow, and a focal idiopathic inflammatory neuritis.
Key words: Lateral antebrachial cutaneous neuropathy
