PMID:  21208836     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
We describe a rare anatomical variation of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) in a 29-year old female patient discovered during a surgical decompression of the LFCN for meralgia paresthetica. Anatomical variations of the LFCN must always be considered at the time of surgery to maximize success rate and avoid nerve damage during surgical dissection.
