Footdrop, Bilateral

  • Klaus Poeck


In contrast to unilateral footdrop, which may be of central or peripheral origin, flaccid bilateral footdrop always indicates disease of the peripheral nerves or of the muscles. Onset may be insidious to the extent that the patient gradually gets used to the alteration of gait and is hardly aware that it is a sign of disease, or it may be acute and therefore alarming.
