Description

Ilionguinal-iliohypogastric nerve entrapment was described as early as 1942 as a rare but proven cause of chronic inguinal pain in patients with previous lower abdominal surgery. We describe two cases of patients who presented to the emergency care unit with complaints of chronic lower abdominal pain. Surgical histories revealed known risk factors for ilioinguinal-iliohypogastric nerve entrapment. After application of a simple bedside procedure, the diagnoses were confirmed.
