Amyotrophy, Monomelic

Description

Monomelic amyotrophy, also known as Hirayama disease, is characterized by insidious onset of weakness and wasting of the muscles of the hand and forearm. It is usually unilateral, but can be bilateral. It occurs most commonly as a sporadic condition, is most common in young men, and follows a relatively benign course after a few years of progression (Nalini et al., 2004; Misra et al., 2005).
