Sural neuropathy: etiologies and predisposing factors.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Isolated sural neuropathy is an uncommon diagnosis. We identified 36 patients with isolated sural neuropathy. Sixteen had various forms of ankle trauma, in three of whom the associated sural neuropathies developed following medical intervention. Three patients developed sural neuropathy associated with vasculitis, and there were single patients with schwannoma and ganglionic cyst. In patients without a history of trauma, structural causes, such as schwannoma or ganglionic cysts and vasculitis, should be considered and managed as appropriate.
