Brachial plexus neuropathy following high-dose cytarabine in acute monoblastic leukemia.


We describe brachial plexus neuropathy with high-dose cytarabine (Ara-C) therapy in a man who had acute monoblastic leukemia. Signs and symptoms of brachial plexus neuropathy appeared on two occasions within hours of exposure to high-dose Ara-C. Central nervous system complications have been described following systemic and intrathecal Ara-C. High-dose Ara-C has not been implicated previously as a cause of brachial plexus neuropathy.
