Sarcoma causing impingement of brachial plexus

Discussion:

Malignant soft tissue tumors such as sarcomas may be difficult to differentiate on MRI. Any primary tumor in the vicinity of the brachial plexus may displace, compress or infiltrate the brachail plexus to cause corresponding clinical symptoms. Other evidence of neoplastic disease affecting the brachial plexus includes lymphadenopathy, bony lesions, intrathoracic and chest wall masses 1,2.
