PMID:  8678139     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Very unusual lumbosacral plexopathy, symptoms appearing after an uncomplicated abdominal hysterectomy prompted a review of the literature. The patient's symptoms spanned the somatic and autonomic systems and ranged from T-11 to S-4; a cause that would explain these is perplexing. Pelvic neuroanatomy and plexopathy symptoms are presented. Etiologies of neurologic symptoms are discussed and preventive strategies are explored.
