Answer

Among patients who do not respond to conventional treatments or whose symptoms progressively worsen despite treatment, consider cervical spine MRI to rule out tumor or cervical rib and to evaluate for cervical radiculopathy. [32]  In those with spinal cord injury, brachioradial pruritus may point to underlying syrinx formation. [35]
