Abstract

A case of a 40-year-old female with meralgia paresthetica after malignant tumor resection in the right inguinal region is reported. Traditionally, meralgia paresthetica is treated with neurotransection or neurolysis. The therapeutic strategy using neurolysis, and the use of a deep inferior epigastric perforator adiposal flap wrapping as a prophylactic procedure against reentrapment is discussed.
