Abstract

Common peroneal nerve injuries represent the most common nerve lesions of the lower limbs. Peroneal palsy might be due to traumatic origin. However, bilateral peroneal nerve involvement in an injury is rarely seen in clinical practice. Here, the first case report of a bilateral peroneal nerve paralysis after gunshot injury is presented.
