Abstract

Background: Lumbosacral plexopathies are rare and may develop as a result of various pathologies. The most common causes of lumbosacral plexopathy include infiltrative infections such as herpes zoster, parturition, tumors, postoperative complications of abdominopelvic surgery, and ischemic vascular injury resulting from intramuscular injections. Treatment is based on the etiology and the severity of the pain.
