Lumbar plexus injuries are rare due to the protected position of the lumbar plexus within the abdomen and pelvis. MR neurography is a valuable tool in indicating this diagnosis and distinguishing it from other pathologies, such as nerve sheath tumors. We reported a rare case of a 29-year-old woman who was ultimately diagnosed with multiple unilateral L2 through L5 posttraumatic neuromas of the lumbar plexus after a fall and discussed the clinical presentation, pathology, imaging features, and differential considerations.
