Abstract

Presentation of scrub typhus associated with brachial neuritis is extremely rare with only a few cases reported so far. Here, we report a case of a 45-year-old female who presented with fever and right shoulder pain. Laboratory parameters showed leucocytosis with ELISA and PCR for scrub typhus positive. Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) study was suggestive of brachial neuritis. She was given doxycycline therapy for 10 days following which her shoulder pain resolved.
