Several postpartum neurologic injuries have been described in detail, while obturator nerve injuries are rarely reported. We report a woman who had weakness of the right leg and groin pain after cesarean delivery under general anesthesia. Obturator neuropathy was confirmed by electromyography and no compressive lesion of the nerve was seen on magnetic resonance imaging. The patient was treated conservatively and followed until she recovered fully.
