Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

According to the World Health Organisation, 22% of primary care patients worldwide suffer from such intense pain that it impairs their capacity to carry out regular activities. Experiencing long-lasting pain can have harmful consequences for both physical and emotional health. Collaborative efforts involving musculoskeletal radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedists, and physiatrists are crucial for accurately diagnosing and treating neurological pain resulting from nerve compression, trauma, and tumors. Peripheral nerve entrapments in the limbs can occur due to multiple factors and manifest at different levels of severity. Peripheral nerve injuries originating from accidents can lead to substantial impairment and greatly affect individuals’ lives. Early evaluation, precise and immediate intervention, and attentive oversight are all critical. Peripheral nerve tumors, which are primarily benign, are uncommon in adults without pre-existing health issues. Neurofibromas and schwannomas are separate types of tumors that can occur alone or together with neurofibromatosis (NF).
