Case study: Gluteal compartment syndrome as a cause of lumbosacral radiculoplexopathy and complex regional pain syndrome

Andrew Lederman, MD, et al.

Although illicit drug use is lower amongst U.S. military personnel than among civilians, it is generally on the rise. Here, a Veteran???s drug abuse resulted in prolonged immobilization, gluteal compartment syndrome, and several morbid sequelae. This resulted in a prolonged hospital course requiring surgery and several interventional procedures to save his life, reduce debilitating pain, and facilitate rehabilitation back to the community. This case serves to demonstrate the course of a patient with the rare entity of gluteal compartment syndrome from traumatic presentation through rehabilitation back to the community.
