Practice of yoga may cause damage of both sciatic nerves: a case report.

Abstract

Sciatic nerve traumatic damage very rarely occurs bilaterally. We describe the case of a 67-year-old woman who reported a bilateral traumatic lesion of the sciatic nerve during practice of yoga. Nerve conduction studies showed a bilateral sciatic nerve neuropathy, mostly affecting the peroneal component. Lumbar plexus MRI documented regular anatomical features of the main principal nerve roots with bilateral T2 signal alteration of roots L4, L5 and S1 that extended into the sciatic nerves showing both increase in size, probably related to chronic injury of nerves, and an alteration in diffusion signal that suggested a recent acute overlapped process.
