Brachioradial pruritus (BRP) is an enigmatic condition often encountered by dermatologists and passed off as a benign itch. It is an “idiopathic” pruritus, presenting as severe itching on the radial aspect of the elbow. The physical examination may be unremarkable except for mild pruritic lesions. Hence, the patient is treated with local applications of sunscreens, anti-inflammatory agents, anti-histamines and steroids, most of which prove to be ineffective. Dermatomal localization of localization of pruritis has suggested cervical myeloradiculopathy as a novel aetiology and this has been elucidated in recent studies. Here we report a young man, who presented with brachioradial pruritus and was diagnosed to have a C6-7 intramedullary cervical cord lesion.
