Three cases with foot drop following brain tumors in patients suffering from parasagittal pathology are reported. Foot drop was the first complaint in the patients in our series. We generally notice foot drop as a sign of lumbar disc herniation or peroneal nerve lesions but rarely foot drop may also occur with brain lesions.
