145 Possible Causes for Sensory Deficit of the Lower Extremity

  • Lumbar Disk Herniation

    Treatment of lumbar disk herniation must be tailored to the individual patient. Bed rest, physical therapy, comfortable positioning, manipulation, drug therapy, and if necessary, hospitalization all have a place in the treatment of the acute phase. A surgical decision should be made only after thorough discussion with[…][]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) is one of the subtypes of multiple sclerosis (MS) distinguished by a slow and irreversible course of myelopathy and overall neurological decline. Contrary to other MS forms, significant female predilection is not observed. Spastic paraparesis and progressive ataxia are[…][]

  • Cervical Herniated Disc

    Cervical herniated disc results in posterior or posterolateral protrusion of the intervertebral disc, most commonly in the C6-C7 segments of the cervical spine. Causes include spinal degeneration and sometimes trauma. Patients may be asymptomatic, but nerve root compression can give rise to symptoms such as pain,[…][]

  • Hematomyelia

    Outcome studies have noted recovery of motor function more than sensory or sphincter function and poor ambulation potential in those without early lower extremity movement[] […] or with proprioceptive deficits.[]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Multiple sclerosis (MS, disseminated sclerosis, encephalomyelitis disseminata) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Multiple sclerosis is divided into the following categories: Relapsing-remitting MS, Secondary progressive MS, Primary progressive MS and Progressive-relapsing MS. Individuals[…][]

  • Cauda Equina Syndrome

    This syndrome presents as low back pain, motor and sensory deficits in the lower extremities, and bladder as well as bowel dysfunction.[] We discuss the case of a 10-year-old girl who presented with sudden ataxia, low back pain, sensory deficits of the left lower extremity, and difficulty urinating and defecating[] lower extremities, and the degree of sphincter incontinence (complete or incomplete CES).[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare postinfectious, immune-mediated disorder affecting the nervous system. Guillain–Barré syndrome is a one-time episode in more than 95% of cases. The generally accepted criteria for the diagnosis of Guillain–Barré syndrome include: progressive, ascending weakness of more than[…][]

  • Fracture

    CASE DESCRIPTION: A 20-year-old man involved in a motorcycle accident presented with unilateral right lower extremity paresis and sensory loss with intact rectal tone and[] […] technique for percutaneous fixation without interbody or posterolateral fusion in a young patient with bilateral pedicle dissociations and an acute-onset incomplete neurologic deficit[]

  • Scoliosis

    There were no lower extremity motor deficits and sensory examination was likewise unremarkable. Test results for nonorganic signs were all negative.[]

  • Peripheral Sensory Neuropathy

    lower extremities more affected than the upper extremities.[] Generalized peripheral neuropathy often manifests with symptoms and signs of sensory and motor deficits distributed symmetrically in a distal-to-proximal gradient, with the[] Back to Top Summary Peripheral neuropathy encompasses a wide spectrum of clinical disorders affecting sensory, motor, and autonomic peripheral nerve fibers.[]
