Abstract

We present a case of supine respiratory failure due to a bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis associated with brachial neuritis secondary to thoracic herpes zoster. Fluoroscopy in both the standing and supine positions revealed bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis accentuated in the supine position. To our knowledge, this is the first case of thoracic herpes zoster associated with brachial neuritis and bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis.
