European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine

 

The European Journal of Case Reports in Internal Medicine is an official journal of the European Federation of Internal Medicine (EFIM). The journal wants to promote the practice of internal medicine in Europe. Its aim is to provide a forum to internal medicine doctors.
EJCRIM welcomes papers describing unusual or complex cases and case series that an internist may encounter in everyday practice. Case series are also welcomed as long as they demonstrate the appropiateness of a therapeutical approach or unusual manifestation of a disease.
The journal would also consider brief reasoned reports of issues relevant to the practice of Internal Medicine, as well as Abstracts submitted to scientific meetings of European societies of Internal Medicine.

EJCRIM is peer-reviewed with single-blind review and freely accessible to all.

Wrist Drop as a Manifestation of Behçet's Disease

ABSTRACT

Radial mononeuropathy most commonly manifesting as wrist drop is generally secondary to penetrating trauma to the radial nerve or compression injuries. It may also involve sensory changes depending on the location of the lesion. However, it has never been described as a sign of an inflammatory process, in particular an autoimmune disease. We describe the case of a 55-year-old man who was admitted for wrist drop with bilateral paraesthesia of the upper extremities. Based on his medical history, we diagnosed Behçet’s disease and subsequently neuro-Behçet’s disease. He is receiving treatment with notable improvement. Neurological involvement in Behçet’s disease is common but frequently undiagnosed.
