Peroneal nerve palsy most commonly occurs due to focal compression of the peroneal nerve at the level of the fibular head and causes foot drop and variable sensory loss. Mononeuropathies infrequently occur in childhood, bilateral peroneal palsy is very rare. In this article, we report the case of a 14-year-old boy with bilateral peroneal nerve entrapment which developed secondary to a prolonged sitting posture. We discuss the clinical assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of this rare case of bilateral peroneal palsy following prolonged immobility in light of the current literature.
