Symptoms of Brachial Neuritis (Parsonage-Turner Syndrome) from Tetanus Vaccines (DTaP)

One of the shoulder and arm injuries our clients often suffer from is called Brachial Neuritis. It is also sometimes called Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, Brachial Neuropathy, and Brachial Radiculitis.

It’s a condition caused by the inflammation of the nerves that run from the neck down through the shoulder and arm, called the “brachial plexus.” When those nerve bundles become inflamed, it can cause severe and debilitating shoulder and arm pain.

Importantly, Brachial Neuritis/Parsonage-Turner Syndrome has been identified by the Vaccine Compensation Program as a condition caused by some vaccinations.

The sharp, radiating pain usually begins in the shoulder immediately or shortly after a vaccine is administered. Over a short period of time, the pain typically extends down the arm. In the case of vaccinations, the inflammation and related pain is only in the shoulder and arm where the vaccine was administered.

The Vaccine Compensation Program has identified Brachial Neuritis as a covered injury deserving of compensation when it follows the administration of tetanus vaccines, such as DTaP, DTP, DT, Td, or TT.
