Presentation of foot drop: Degenerative stenosis or spinal metastases? (pp. 319-322) $45.00
Authors:  Julia Hamer, Erin Wong, Rachel McDonald, Nicholas Lao, Natalie Pulenzas, Leigha Rowbottom, and Edward Chow
Drop foot is a neuromuscular symptom that prevents dorsiflexion of the ankle and can cause significant radicular pain for patients. In most cases, the significant weakening of the ankle muscles is a consequence of peroneal nerve damage originating in the L4-L5 region of the spine. This can be a result of degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis which narrows the vertebral canal and impinge the nerve at the L5 region of the spine. In rare cases, bone metastases can cause compression of the spine resulting in drop foot. Here, we present the differential diagnoses of a patient with both multilevel degenerative spinal stenosis and spinal bone metastases with drop foot.
