Acute unilateral foot drop as a result of direct blunt trauma to the peroneal nerve in a professional mixed marital arts bout: A case report

N.K. Sethi, V Khabie

Abstract


As a result of its superficial location, the peroneal nerve is prone to compression injuries. This is a case report of an acute unilateral foot drop which occurred during a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) contest, specifically as a result of direct blunt trauma to the left peroneal nerve, without an accompanying fracture of the fibula.

Keywords: foot extensor weakness, gait abnormality, contact sports, mixed martial arts
