Bilateral femoral nerve compression and compartment syndrome resulting from influenza A-induced rhabdomyolysis: a case report

VIEWS: 17 PAGES: 6

Bilateral femoral nerve compression neuropathy caused by primary iliopsoas muscle pathology is rare. We report a case of extensive compartment syndrome of the right arm and both legs associated with bilateral femoral nerve palsy resulting from severe muscle swelling secondary to influenza A infection. Our objective is to alert physicians to the possible development of compartment syndrome in patients with influenza and severe myalgia. We also reviewed the literature on the pathophysiology and management of femoral nerve compression neuropathy. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
