So I was between L4 and S1 radiculopathies on this one and couldn't remember the sensory/motor/reflex losses that differentiated the two. Here's a summary (including L5 for completeness)

L4 Radiculopathy:

  • sensory loss: distal lateral thigh over patella to medial calf
  • motor loss: knee extension, tibialis anterior (foot dorsiflexion) โ†’ difficulty heel walking
  • reflex loss: patellar reflex

L5 Radiculopathy:

  • sensory loss: Dorsolateral thigh, lateral side of the knee, anterolateral lower leg, dorsum of foot, big toe
  • motor loss: Extensor hallucis longus muscle (first toe dorsiflexion) โ†’ difficulty heel walking (foot drop)

S1 Radiculopathy:

  • sensory loss: Lateral foot
  • motor loss: Peroneus longus and brevis muscle (foot eversion) and gastrocnemius muscle (foot plantarflexion) โ†’ difficulty toe walking
  • reflex loss: Achilles

Pt has malignant effusion, which you would expect to be exudative. Exudative is characterized by protein pleural/serum > 0.5 LDH pleural/serum >0.6, and a LDH >2/3 upper limit of normal. So that would be increased protein or increased LDH, LDH is not an answer, so easy to rule out.
