Complex Lateral Leg Pain in a CKD Patient: Unveiling Fibular Fracture and Nerve Compression.

Patient Information
Chief Complaint (C/O):
Medical History:

In summary, this complex case involves a CKD patient with persistent severe lateral leg pain, unresponsive to traditional treatments. Electrophysiologic studies yielded normal results, prompting an ultrasound examination guided by Prof. Hanan. Notably, the ultrasound revealed a cortical bone gap in the upper 1/3 of the fibula, accompanied by non-ossified callus or hematoma encroaching upon the superficial peroneal nerve. Confirmation of the fracture via plain x-ray underscores the significance of a comprehensive diagnostic approach in addressing intricate cases like this.
