In Pakistan harvesting season occurs from April to May and again from October to December. Thirteen farmers with a history of foot drop were studied in neurophysiology laboratory of Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) during the period from March 2019 to December 2019. All the patients had nerve conduction study (NCS) while in some of the patients, electromyography (EMG) was also done to determine the duration of injury and to rule out other differential diagnoses.
