Benign Monomelic Amyotrophy (BMA) is a sporadic condition
characterized by a neurogenic amyotrophy that affects a single either upper or lower limb; typically the disease is confined to second motoneuron involvement without cerebellar, pyramidal and cognitive signs; extrapyramidal features are not reported in BMA. We describe the case of a patient who experienced weakness and muscle atrophy in the right limb which starts approximately 5 years ago and progressed over the following 4 years. There was no history of poliomyelitis or familial neuromuscolar diseases. He denied any sensory symptoms; neurological examination showed marked amyotrophy of the right calf and mild amyotrophy of the right thigh with mild-to-moderate weakness; cranial nerves, sensory, pyramidal and cerebellar systems were normal.
