Show Summary Details


A 20-year-old woman is referred by the orthopaedic surgeons. She has been complaining of rather indistinct bilateral leg pains, a little worse on the right side. These have been present for about 2 years and have been tolerable, but more recently she has found that the right lower leg pain has subsided and she has had some difficulty, particularly with the right foot, when walking and running. Her medical history is relevant only for removal of a fatty lump from her lower back as a child, which was performed abroad. Since childhood she has never developed proper bladder control and voids using intermittent self-catheterization.
