Lataral femoral cutaneous neuropathyMeralgia parestheticaThoracolumbosacral orthosis
Abstract
Meralgia paresthetica is a lateral femoral cutaneous neuropathy that
results in symptoms of anterolateral thigh paresthesia and numbness.
Its presentation due to compression of a thoraco-lumbo-sacralorthosis
(TLSO) has not been reported. We experienced a case of a
67-year-old woman who developed left lateral femoral cutaneous
neuropathy as a complication of inaccurate wearing of a TLSO. The
patient suffered from tingling sensation and pain in the anterolateral
aspect of the left thigh without muscular weakness. An electrodiagnostic
study revealed a conduction block in the left lateral femoral
cutaneous nerve (LFCN) around the inguinal ligament.
Ultrasonography revealed swelling of the left LFCN compared with the
right side. The patient’s symptoms improved after she ceased
wearing the TLSO and received conservative care. Considering the
complications can develop after wearing spinal orthosis, we suggest
that orthosis be prescribed accurately and inspected meticulously by
experts physician.
