Abstract/Notes

In the third and last in Dr. Schimp's series on worrisome legs, he presents a step-by-step approach to the diagnosis of polyneuropathy, peripheral nerve entrapments, and some of their confounding mimics.

Lower-back pain is usually benign and self-limiting, but this may not be true in patients with concomitant lower-extremity symptoms. A strong determinant of disability associated with lower-back pain is the presence of a symptomatic leg.1 Part 1 presented an evidence-based algorithm to provide clinicians with a systematic, data-driven approach for the diagnostic work-up of worrisome leg symptoms that are vascular in origin. Part 2 presented a practical approach to leg pain of neuropathic radicular origin. Part 3 presents a step-by-step approach to the diagnosis of polyneuropathy, peripheral nerve entrapments, and some of their confounding mimics.
