75 Possible Causes for Femoral Nerve Compression

  • Hemophilia

    compression iliacus hematoma may compress femoral nerve and presents with paresthesias in the L4 distribution leg length discrepancy due to epiphyseal overgrowth fractures[orthobullets.com] Iliopsoas bleeding is dangerous because of the large volumes of blood loss and because of compression of the femoral nerve.[web.archive.org] […] inheritence Orthopaedic manifestations hemophilic arthropathy synovitis cartilage destruction joint deformity pseudotumor intramuscular hematoma (pseudotumor) may lead to nerve[orthobullets.com]

  • Meralgia Paresthetica

    […] cutaneous nerve.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lateral femoral cutaneous nerve can be compressed particularly as it passes under Poupart's ligament, leading to pain and paresthesia in the lateral aspect of the thigh[jamanetwork.com] Compression of the nerve usually occurs at the point where it passes between the anterior superior iliac spine and the inguinal ligament.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Femoral Neuropathy

    Right femoral nerve lesion Right femoral nerve palsy Right femoral nerve paralysis Right femoral neuropathy Right genitofemoral nerve compression Right genitofemoral nerve[icd9data.com] However, hematoma of iliacus muscle resulting in femoral nerve compression is a rare condition in these patients.[indjvascsurg.org] A low-lying fetal head may compress and damage the femoral nerve [11] .[journals.lww.com]

  • Musculoskeletal Lower Back Pain

    T est for cruralgia (femoral nerve root compression) Cruralgia is not as common as sciatica.[bjdonline.org] Pain in the anterior thigh indicates compression of the roots of the femoral nerve on that side. Repeat the test with the other leg.[bjdonline.org] Pain down the leg distal to the knee suggests sciatic nerve root compression.[bjdonline.org]

  • Exostosis

    Unusual "traction" exostosis of the femoral diaphysis with sciatic nerve compression. J Clin Rheumatol. 2010;16(2):94–5.[bmcresnotes.biomedcentral.com] Unusual "traction" exostosis of the femoral diaphysis with sciatic nerve compression.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Obesity

    Anatomical course of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve and its susceptibility to compression and injury. Plast Reconstr Surg 1997;100:600–4.[doi.org] Anatomical course of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve and its susceptibility to compression and injury. Plast Reconstr Surg 1997 ; 100 : 600 – 4. 22.[doi.org] Figure 1 The variations in the course of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve are illustrated as it exits the abdomen.[doi.org]

  • Neuropathy

    Other mononeuropathies include Bell's palsy, interosseous nerve compression and femoral nerve entrapment.[patient.info] Lateral femoral cutaneous nerve compression Leads to meralgia paraesthetica. Numbness in the lateral aspect of the thigh.[patient.info] Radial nerve compression Radial neuropathy usually results from compression against the humerus. Leads to 'Saturday night palsy'. Wrist and finger drop.[patient.info]

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    A crossed straight-leg raising test may also suggest nerve root compression.[aafp.org] In addition, the femoral stretch test can be used to evaluate the reproducibility of pain.[aafp.org]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Other mononeuropathies include Bell's palsy, interosseous nerve compression and femoral nerve entrapment.[patient.info] Lateral femoral cutaneous nerve compression Leads to meralgia paraesthetica. Numbness in the lateral aspect of the thigh.[patient.info] Radial nerve compression Radial neuropathy usually results from compression against the humerus. Leads to 'Saturday night palsy'. Wrist and finger drop.[patient.info]

  • Restless Legs Syndrome
