BACKGROUND: Acute bilateral foot drop is a uncommon medical presentation.
CASE DESCRIPTION: A 77-year-old male introduced with acute bilateral weak point of the foot and ankle dorsiflexion. Magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar backbone revealed ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, in addition to a mass lesion that appeared hyperintense on T1-weighted photographs and hypointense on T2-weighted photographs. Emergent decompressive laminectomy and hemorrhagic synovial cyst excision had been carried out. Histopathologic examination of the tissue revealed a synovial cyst with hemorrhage.
CONCLUSION: Right here, we describe a singular case of a hemorrhagic synovial cyst with a presenting symptom of acute bilateral foot drop.
