MedlinePlus:34 Thoracic outlet syndrome (tos) causes pain in the arm, shoulder, and neck. it happens when the nerves or blood vessels just below your neck are compressed, or squeezed. the compression can happen between the muscles of your neck and shoulder or between the first rib and collarbone. you may feel burning, tingling, and numbness along your arm, hand, and fingers. if a nerve is compressed, you may also feel weakness in your hand. if a vein is compressed, your hand might be sensitive to cold, or turn pale or bluish. your arm might swell and tire easily. tos is more common in women. it usually starts between 20 and 50 years of age. doctors do nerve and imaging studies to diagnose it. there are many causes of tos, including injury anatomical defects tumors that press on nerves poor posture that causes nerve compression pregnancy repetitive arm and shoulder movements and activity, such as from playing certain sports treatment depends on what caused your tos. medicines, physical therapy, and relaxation might help. surgery may also be an option. most people recover. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke

MalaCards: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, also known as TOS, is related to hepatitis and leukemia, and has symptoms including acute ischemic syndrome, varices/varicous veins/venous insufficiency and paresthesia/dysesthesia/hypoesthesia/anesthesia/numbness. An important gene associated with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is PLAT (plasminogen activator, tissue). Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, testes and bone, and related mouse phenotypes are immune system and hematopoietic system.

Disease Ontology:8 A vascular disease that is characterized by compression at the superior thoracic outlet[1] resulting from excess pressure placed on a neurovascular bundle passing between the anterior scalene and middle scalene muscles.

NIH Rare Diseases:43 Thoracic outlet syndrome (tos) describes a group of conditions that are characterized by compression of the nerves, arteries, and veins in the lower neck and upper chest area. this can result in pain in the arms, shoulders, and neck. currently, there is considerable disagreement about its diagnosis and treatment. a number of disorders have symptoms similar to those of tos, including rotator cuff injuries, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, complex regional pain syndrome, and tumors of the syrinx or spinal cord. symptoms of this condition vary depending on the type. the different types include neurogenic, venous, and arterial thoracic outlet syndrome. there are many different causes of toc. symptoms usually occur between 20 and 50 years of age. last updated: 1/26/2012

NINDS:44 TOS is an umbrella term that encompasses three related syndromes that involve compression of the nerves, arteries, and veins in the lower neck and upper chest area and cause pain in the arm, shoulder, and neck.
