Meralgia Paresthetica is a nerve entrapment which may cause pain, numbness, hypersensivity and paresthesias within in the anterolateral region of the thigh which is the area of distributions of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. According to the literature there is a large variability in the nerve course as the nerve pierces the inguinal ligament. Blockade of the LFCN has been classically described using anatomic landmark but the anatomic variability of the nerve may be responsible for failure rates as high as 60%. Ultrasound guidance for peripheral nerve blocks has become popular among physicians because of its several advantages when compared with traditional nerve localization techniques. Ultrasound guided lateral femoral cutaneous nerve blocks can be performed with better success.

Keywords: Meralgia Paresthetica, Ultrasound guided injection, Lateral femoral cutaneus nerve
