Abstract

Educational objectives: To discuss a case of adult-onset asymmetric distal leg weakness in a patient who presented with weakness and atrophy of the posterior compartment of the left leg. Key Questions: 1. What is the differential diagnosis of asymmetric distal leg weakness? 2. How would a clinician approach diagnostic testing for such a patient? 3. What is the final diagnosis for this patient? 4. How to treat this patient?
