Abstract

A 30-year-old woman developed severe bilateral radial neuropathies during vaginal delivery of twins, likely secondary to positioning and muscular effort. Subsequent evaluation led to the diagnosis of hereditary neuropathy with predisposition to pressure palsies. Avoidance of prolonged muscular effort in the arms in conjunction with medial intervention to shorten the second stage of labor may help prevent debilitating radial nerve injury in women with this disorder.
