A Case Report on Nerve Conduction in Right Limb Muscular Atrophy

Arbind Kumar Choudhary | Sadawarte Sahebrao Kishanrao

Abstract: Nerve conduction studies (NCS) are used to assess peripheral nerve function. Actually one side peroneal muscular atrophy observed in individuals is very rare. A case of 25 years old male has muscle atrophy in right leg. Nerve conduction report showed, sensory nerve conduction (SNCV) and F-wave was normal in both side (right and left) and motor nerve action potential (MNAP) of median, ulnar and bilateral posterior tibial nerve was normal in upper and lower limb respectively, While in case of common peroneal nerve (CPN), motor nerve conduction (MNCV) was normal in left leg, but however, there was decrease in motor nerve conduction in right leg, which may be the reason of muscle atrophy

Keywords: Muscle atrophy, Nerve conduction, Peroneal nerve and Tibial nerve
