We report the case of a patient who developed notalgia paresthetica during the recovery from a neuralgic amyotrophy. A 23-year-old woman had a typical neuralgic amyotrophy (severe shoulder pain, followed by a long thoracic nerve palsy); five months after the onset of pain, when scapular winging was improving, she began to feel a burning sensation in a restricted interscapular area, on the same side. Electromyography was consistent with a long thoracic nerve neuropathy, with minor neurogenic changes in deltoid and biceps brachii. Radiography of the spine was unremarkable. The notalgia paresthetica disappeared shortly before the complete recovery of scapular winging. The abnormal activation of shoulder girdle and spine extensor muscles during the time of long thoracic nerve palsy may explain the association between the two disorders.
