Recurrent branch of median nerve (C5-T1) Superficial laceration of palm “Ape hand” Loss of thenar muscle group: opposition, loss of abduction, and flexion of thumb No loss of sensation
Erb palsy (“waiter’s tip”) C5-C6 roots Infants—lateral traction on neck during delivery Adults—trauma Deltoid, supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Biceps brachii (arm hangs by side) (arm medially rotated) (arm extended and pronated)
Klumpke palsy lower trunk: C8-T1 roots Infants—upward force on arm during delivery Adults—trauma (eg, grabbing a tree branch to break a fall) Intrinsic hand muscles: lumbricals, interossei, thenar, hypothenar Total claw hand
Thoracic outlet syndrome Compression of lower trunk and subclavian vessels, Cervical rib (, Pancoast tumor) - Atrophy of intrinsic hand muscles; - ischemia, pain, - edema due to vascular compression
Winged scapula Lesion of long thoracic nerve, roots C5-C7 -Axillary node dissection - stab wounds Serratus anterior - Inability to anchor scapula to thoracic cage - cannot abduct arm above horizontal position
Iliohypogastric (T12-L1) Sensory—suprapubic region Motor—transversus abdominis and internal oblique injury -Abdominal surgery presents as Burning or tingling pain in surgical incision site radiating to inguinal and suprapubic region
< upper medial thigh and anterior thigh sensation beneath the inguinal ligament (lateral part of the femoral triangle); absent cremasteric reflex Genitofemoral nerve (L1-L2) innervation - Sensory—scrotum/labia majora, medial thigh Motor—cremaster injury -Laparoscopic surgery
decrease thigh sensation (anterior and lateral) Lateral femoral cutaneous (L2-L3) injury due to Tight clothing, obesity, pregnancy, pelvic procedures Sensory—anterior and lateral thigh
decrease thigh sensation (medial) and adduction Obturator (L2-L4 injury due to Pelvic surgery Sensory—medial thigh Motor—obturator externus, adductor longus, adductor brevis, gracilis, pectineus, adductor magnus
decrease leg extension ( decrease patellar reflex) Femoral (L2-L4) injury due to Pelvic fracture Sensory—anterior thigh, medial leg Motor—quadriceps, iliacus, pectineus, sartorius
Splits into common peroneal and tibial nerves Sciatic (L4-S3) Motor—semitendinosus, semimembranosus, biceps femoris, adductor magnus injury Herniated disc, posterior hip dislocation
foot drop inverted and plantar flexed at rest, Common peroneal (L4-S2)
— loss of eversion and dorsiflexion; “steppage gait” Common peroneal (L4-S2) injury; Trauma or compression of lateral aspect of leg, fibular neck fracture
Inability to curl toes and loss of sensation on sole; in proximal lesions, Tibial (L4-S3) injury injured in; Baker cyst (proximal lesion);
Tibial (L4-S3) Sensory—sole of foot Motor—biceps femoris (long head), triceps surae, plantaris, popliteus, flexor muscles of foot injured in ; Knee trauma, tarsal tunnel syndrome (distal lesion) results in - foot everted at rest with loss of inversion and plantar flexion
