Plexopathies are lesions that affect the major interchanging segments between the nerve roots and the peripheral nerves. Plexopathy should be considered when the pattern of nerve dysfunction cannot be explained by a lesion of a single nerve root or peripheral nerve. Plexopathies usually occur as recognizable syndromes. In most instances the diagnosis is made clinically, with support from electrodiagnostic and imaging studies. Treatment and prognosis depend on the underlying condition.
