We report a 29-year old female who developed bilateral femoral neuropathy combined with multiple abscesses in both thigh muscles. She was present with weakness in both lower extremities for 15 days and intermittent chilling sense for 3 months. Nerve conduction study showed complete absence of compound muscle action potentials in bilateral femoral nerves when stimulated at inguinal area. Electromyographic examination revealed no motor unit action potentials in both rectus femoris and vastus medialis muscles. CT revealed multifocal abscesses in bilateral thigh muscles. After antibiotic treatment, the patient's neurologic symptoms were improved.
Key words: Bilateral femoral neuropathy, Multifocal abscesses
