Abstract

Using ultrasonography we found multiple sites with nerve enlargement along the course of the brachial plexus, median, ulnar, and radial nerves in the majority of 21 patients with multifocal motor neuropathy. Sonography and electrophysiologic studies showed more abnormalities than expected on purely clinical grounds. Moreover, sonography revealed nerve enlargement without clinical or electrophysiologic abnormalities.
