Foot injury is caused with damage to nerves of toes.

DiamondrgFoot injury is caused with damage to nerves of toes.

You must say 'a foot injury' or 'the foot injury.'
'Caused by' is better than 'caused with.'
Also you should say 'can be caused' not 'is caused.'

How about:
A foot injury can be caused by damage to the toe nerves.
The relationship here is not exactly causation, in my opinion.

Foot injuries may involve damage to the nerves of the toes.
Foot injuries may consist of nerve damage in the toes.
A foot injury, if left untreated, can lead to nerve damage.

I agree with you on that. can you make necessary alterations on the original sentence? please do not change the words and structure if not necessary.

and what about this sentence? does it make sense?

-A foot injury is caused by damage to nerves between toes.

actually it appeared in a national exam question:

A foot injury is caused ---- damage to nerves ---- toes.

A) by / between B) with / of C) from / at . . .

some info on the matter:

Of course, feet can and do get injured. The pounding of the road, the friction of ill-fitting shoes, the germs in a locker room - these and many other problems can lead to foot injury or disease.

Sometimes it is caused by a neuroma or benign tumour on the plantar digital nerves (situated in the web between the toes). It may develop due to ill fitting shoes which press against the nerve. The condition is made worse by athletes who spin on the ball of their foot such as golfers and tennis players.

Toe, foot, or ankle injuries most commonly occur during:

  • Sports or recreational activities.
  • Work-related tasks.
  • Work or projects around the home.

    In children, most toe, foot, or ankle injuries occur during sports or play or accidental falls. The risk for injury is higher in sports with jumping, such as basketball, or sports with quick direction change, such as soccer or football. Any bone injury near a joint may injure the growth plate (physis) in a child and needs to be evaluated.

No. The correct combination is "caused by".
Nevertheless, "caused" and "with" can be used together in the same sentence, but not associated with one another in such a way that we can claim that one is used with the other. Rather, "with" can indicate a second, related thing which is also caused.

Tooth decay is caused with halitosis by failure to brush regularly.
The man's concussion was caused
with resulting anmesia by a severe blow to the head.

More likely, though, the order would be:
The man's concussion with resulting anmesia was caused by a severe blow to the head.

The interplay of "caused by" and "caused | with" makes it difficult to decide the answer to the original question in this thread. One wants to contextualize (imagine a scenario) thus:

What happens when we place too much pressure on the foot for too long?
Foot injury is caused with damage to the nerves [of / leading to / between] the toes.

The injury is not caused by the nerve damage. It is caused by the same thing that causes nerve damage, namely, placing too much pressure on the foot for too long. Nerve damage is in fact an injury, constitutes what (one type of) an injury is. One wonders whether the author of the sentence is keeping this in mind, and, if so, whether we, in answering the question, are to take it into account, and if not, whether we are to discount it.

A foot injury is caused ---- damage to nerves ---- toes.

A) by / between B) with / of C) from / at . . .

My answer would be A, although I don't find any of the choices completely satisfactory.
See my previous posts for related discussions.

I agree, I also choose A

A foot injury is caused by damage to nerves between toes.

Here is my understanding:

Why someone gets a foot injury?

Becuase the neves which coodinate or connect (or in charge of ) the toes do not function properly, therefore when his feet may possibly hit stones while walking, but he still can not feel it as a result of the nevers being unable to pass the feelings to his brian. and thus his foot gets injured.

I also think 'with' should be followed by an aritcle.
