Posterior femoral cutaneous nerve neuropathy post marathon: a case report


Description

Posterior femoral cutaneous nerve (PFCN) neuropathy is an uncommon, under-recognized cause of low back, buttock, perineal, and thigh pain and numbness. Most PFCN injuries are caused by intramuscular injections, however this is the first reported case of a PFCN injury of hamstring pathology due to tendonitis caused by long-distance running. A middle-aged male presented with buttock pain two weeks post marathon. The pain progressed such that he was unable to sit down for over a year. After excluding the more common etiologies of buttock pain and sitting intolerance, practitioners should consider the rarer condition of PFCN neuropathy in runners.
