Abstract: “Drop foot” palsy attributed to the prolonged and repetitive maintenance of the crossed-leg posture has been occasionally reported. We report, to the best of our knowledge, the first case of magnetic resonance imaging evidence of peroneal nerve abnormalities related to right drop-foot palsy in a tall healthy subject with habit of prolonged daily leg crossing.
