Abstract

Sciatic neuropathy secondary to compartment syndrome in a patient that suffered a building collapse

Sciatic neuropathy is an uncommonly diagnosed focal mononeuropathy. Causes may include trauma, diabetic mononeuropathy, intragluteal injections, gluteal spontaneous haemorrhage or piriformis syndrome. We present a 21 year old man how suffered a crush lesion due to a building collapse while he was working. Gluteal compartment syndrome should be rule out in patients who developed sciatic neuropathy after a trauma and electrophysiological studies can help us in the localization and prognosis of the lesion.
