Non-small cell cancer of the lung metastasized to the central nervous system presenting with drop foot: a case report
Drop foot usually presents as lumbar discopathy or peripheral nerve lesion. There may be many causes in the etiology of foot drop, which is rarely reported in upper motor nerve lesions. In this case report, a 59-year-old patient with lung cancer whose only symptom was drop foot was presented. In the patient's anamnesis, physical examination and imaging methods, we were guided by a central cause. As a result, it was concluded that although the etiology of foot drop is mostly due to peripheral lesions, central causes should not be ignored.
