Adult peripheral nerve pathology is quite extensive, it comprises traumatic injuries (closed and open), compressive neuropathies and lesions secondary to other medical procedures. It is important to have a well established protocol for diagnosis, as in some lesions time is a key factor for recovery. This is important for the primary care physician that makes the diagnosis, regardless of who will treat the patient. When proposing a management plan it is important to set goals, as some lesions may be completely resolved, but in other cases all we can offer is palliative treatment due to the evolution and severity of the case.
