What Is Brachial Neuritis?

Brachial Neuritis is the swelling and inflammation of nerve bundles that send signals from the spine to the entire arm. The syndrome usually starts with sudden, severe, and sharp pain or burning in the shoulder and upper arm with no apparent cause.  However, after a few weeks the constant pain goes away and is replaced by muscle weakness or atrophy in the upper arm.

Brachial neuritis also goes by the names Neuralgic Amyotrophy and Parsonage Turner Syndrome. Because of the immediate pain symptoms, the disease is often misdiagnosed at first.

Can Brachial Neuritis Be Triggered by an Immunization or a Tetanus Shot?

Yes.  In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services lists brachial neuritis as one of the known reactions to the tetanus toxoid vaccines.  These types of vaccines include the common (DTaP) diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine.  However, other vaccines may trigger brachial neuritis, including the influenza vaccine and the hepatitis B vaccine.

To quaqlify for compensation based on the NVICP’s Vaccine Injury Table, symptoms of Brachial Neuritis after a tetanus vaccine must come on between 2 – 28 days from the vaccination.  


Can I Get Compensation From the National Vaccine Program for Brachial Neuritis triggered by a Vaccine Reaction?

Yes.  Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. has represented brachial neuritis patients in the United States Court of Federal Claims, winning financial compensation for severe reactions to immunizations.

For example, the Firm represented a firefighter suffering from brachial neuritis shoulder injury from a tetanus vaccination.  At the end of the case, the firefighter was awarded more than $285,000 in compensation.  The firefighter kept all of the settlement money and did not have to pay the Firm from his compensation.  That’s because our legal fees are paid separately by the federal court.
