The musculocutaneous nerve is a branch of the lateral cord of the brachial plexus. This is the nerve most intimately associated with the biceps muscle.

It supplies the biceps, coracobrachialis, and brachialis muscles as well as the skin.

The most common cause of injury to the musculocutaneous nerve is trauma.

Weight lifting (biceps curls) may lead to musculocutaneous nerve palsy.

Why this occurs is the subject of various theories. Either compression due to muscle hypertrophy or traction on the nerve have both been posited as possible reasons.
