The thoracic outlet syndrome is a pathology related to the compression of the vasculo-nervous elements during their passage through the thoraco-brachial crossing. It is a rare condition in our practice because of difficult diagnosis. Its manifestation can be vascular, vegetative or neurological. The neurological manifestation is the most encountered. It can be made of isolated sensory disorder, motor or the 2 associated. We report the case of a 25-year-old patient followed in the department of Physical Medicine and Functional Rehabilitation for a thoracic outlet syndrome with a favorable evolution after 4 months follow-up of functional rehabilitation.
