J Orthop Trauma. 1992;6(3):370-2. doi: 10.1097/00005131-199209000-00017.


We report the case of a 28-year-old woman who developed signs and symptoms of brachial-plexus neurapraxia eight years after a type III acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation. Stabilization of the AC joint resulted in resolution of the symptoms.
