The traumatic plexopathy of the brachial plexus, called Stinger lesion, is little known to the orthopedic surgeon, yet it is a very frequent and common injury in high-level contact athletes. Its quick identification in its typical presentation, the elimination of the most severe alternative diagnosis and its management must be known in order to be adapted to the athlete's sporting objectives. Atypical forms with slow recovery are rare and represent a real diagnostic challenge. We report the case of a professional rugby player who presented an atypical Stinger injury and detail its management. This original case is an opportunity to provide a comprehensive review of the different forms and presentations of these traumatic plexopathies and their management.
