Dorsal Root Radiculopathy

Radiculopathy is generally associated with back or neck pain radiating into an extremity. The pain is poorly localizing for nerve root level but typical in the fact that it is radiating. There will generally be a loss of all modalities of sensation in a dermatomal distribution, a corresponding weakness in a myotomal distribution (i.e., with ventral root involvement as well), and segmental hyporeflexia. The most common cause is a herniated disc or osteophyte compressing on a nerve root. A structural lesion such as a neurofibroma or a metastatic focus must also be taken into consideration as possible causes.
