Abstract

Introduction: Sciatic mononeuropathy resulting from compression by an adjacent pelvic ectopic kidney has not been reported in the literature. Here, the authors present a case of a patient presenting with unilateral lower extremity paresthesia correlating to the sciatic nerve distribution.

Results: MRI examination demonstrated lumbosacral plexus compression by a very unusual deeply situated renal ectopia. Physicians should consider other rare causes of mechanical lumbosacral plexus compression in patients with sciatic symptomatology.
