Answer

See the list below:

  • Nerve biopsy usually is not indicated in brachial neuritis. Axonal loss rarely is identified with biopsies of the radial sensory branch.

  • Lumbar puncture usually is not indicated. Analysis of cerebrospinal fluid generally is within the reference range in individuals with brachial neuritis.
