Nerve compression syndromes of the lower extremity.
Am Fam Physician. 1989 Oct; 40(4):101-12.AF

Abstract

Nerve compression syndromes of the lower extremity present a challenge in differential diagnosis. Compression of the common peroneal nerve occurs relatively frequently; compression of the sciatic nerve occurs infrequently. The pattern of weakness helps distinguish lumbar root entrapment from peripheral compression syndromes. Compression syndromes must also be differentiated from diabetic, alcoholic or vasculitic neuropathy. Recovery correlates with the degree and duration of nerve injury. Thus, early diagnosis and treatment are important.
