 en Case Report - Winging of scapula following lymph node biopsy in posterior triangle of neck
Sharma, Hemant; Goel, Navneet K & Maini, Lalit


Injury to accessory nerve in the posterior triangle of neck leads to disabling paralysis of the trapezius muscle. It is a well-known but frequently forgotten complication of lymph node biopsy taken casually in minor operation theatre under local anesthesia. We describe such a patient with emphasis on prevention, early diagnosis and management.
