Abstract

colon; What may initially appear to be a classic presentation of a common condition-in this case sciatic radiculopathy from presumed disc herniation-can sometimes reflect a more ominous process. This article discusses the presentation, diagnosis, and management of a patient initially referred for neurosurgical consultation for S1 radiculopathy suspected to be due to a work-related injury. Final diagnosis was metastatic adenocarcinoma of the rectum.
