What is Plexopathy?

Plexopathy is a disorder affecting a network of nerves, blood vessels, or lymph vessels.

There are two main types of plexopathy: brachial plexopathy and lumbosacral plexopathy. They are usually caused from some sort of localized trauma such as a dislocated shoulder. The disorder can also be caused secondary to a compression, co-morbid vascular disease, infection, or may be idiopathic with an unknown cause.
