Squamous cell carcinoma may present with atypical peripheric nerve symptoms. Lung cancers are the second most common cancer which metastasize to the brachial plexus. Metastatic brachial plexopathy (BP) is almost always unilateral. We document MR images of a case with squamous cell lung cancer presenting as bilateral metastatic BP. Although very rare, bilateral plexopathy may be the presenting situation of lung cancer.
