SummaryDevelopment of unilateral calf enlargement following chronic S1 radiculopathy occurred in a 39-year-old woman. Computed tomographic examination of the leg musculature showed that the calf enlargement was due to pseudohypertrophy, as the increased area in the posterior leg muscles showed a decrease in density.
