Hereditary neuralgic amyotrophy with predilection for the brachial plexus (HNA) is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with recurrent, episodic, painful brachial neuropathies. Mildly dysmorphic facial features, including hypotelorism, long nasal bridge, and upslanting palpebral fissures, are present in affected persons in some pedigrees with HNA. To determine the chromosomal location of the HNA gene, we carried out genetic linkage studies with polymerase chain reaction-based DNA markers… CONTINUE READING
