Lumbosacral plexopathy secondary to discectomy and fixation
MetadataShow full item record
Lumbosacral plexopathy (LSP) is a rare entity characterized by acute onset of pain followed by sensory and motor deficits, reflex changes and muscle atrophy. The diagnosis is based on clinical and EMG findings. LSP can result from pelvic tumors, infections, trauma, abdominopelvic or spinal surgery, radiation, intravenous drug abuse, diabetic neuropathy, vasculitis or maybe idiopathic. We present a case report of LSP following spinal surgery treated by pulse steroid and immunotherapy.
