Abstract

Benign focal amyotrophy is an uncommon variant of neuron disease characterized by the gradual development of atrophy usually involving one upper extremity with a subsequent nonprogressive course. Previous descriptive reports have included normal radiological studies. We present a case of benign focal amyotrophy with a metrizamide CT myelographic finding of segmental cord atrophy in a distribution consistent with the patient's clinical findings.
