    • In 1943, Spillane was probably the first to recognize acute brachial plexus neuritis as a distinct clinical entity.
    • Differentiating acute brachial plexus neuritis from other diagnoses is important so that surgical treatment is not performed for small osteophytes that may be present on MRI, but are not causing the patient's neurologic deficits.
    • Unlike acute brachial plexus neuritis, the pain, weakness and sensory loss associated with cervical radiculopathy tend to occur simultaneously.
    • It is therefore specifically useful for various types of neuralgia and neuritis when there is hyperemia, nervous irritability and intercostal neuralgia, ovarian neuralgia and sometimes sciatic neuritis or neuralgia.
    • It is probably due to supraorbital neuritis - an irritation of a small nerve above the eyebrow which supplies sensation to this area.
