NIH Rare Diseases:47 Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy is a type of nervous system disease that affects the brachial plexus. Common signs and symptoms include episodes of severe pain and muscle wasting in one or both shoulders and arms. Attacks may be spontaneous or triggered (e.g., by exercise, childbirth, surgery, infection etc.). Secondary complications, such as decreased sensation, abnormal sensations (e.g., numbness and tingling), chronic pain, and impaired movement may develop overtime. Affected members in some families may share additional distinct physical and facial characteristics. Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy can be caused by mutations in the SEPT9 gene. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion. Last updated: 5/18/2011
MalaCards based summary: Amyotrophy, Hereditary Neuralgic, also known as hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy, is related to brachial plexus neuritis and amyotrophic neuralgia, and has symptoms including polyneuropathy, muscle weakness and arthralgia. An important gene associated with Amyotrophy, Hereditary Neuralgic is SEPT9 (Septin 9). Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle and eye.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:69 Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy: Autosomal dominant form of recurrent focal neuropathy characterized clinically by acute, recurrent episodes of brachial plexus neuropathy with muscle weakness and atrophy preceded by severe pain in the affected arm. HNA is triggered by environmental factors such as infection or parturition.
Genetics Home Reference:25 Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy is a disorder characterized by episodes of severe pain and muscle wasting (amyotrophy) in one or both shoulders and arms. Neuralgic pain is felt along the path of one or more nerves and often has no obvious physical cause. The network of nerves involved in hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy, called the brachial plexus, controls movement and sensation in the shoulders and arms.
