We present a case of brachial neuritis in an adult male who underwent high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation (SCT) for primary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). Brachial neuropathy following SCT has not previously been reported in patients with MS. The etiology of peripheral nerve dysfunction following SCT remains obscure.
