Chronic pain may occur in the ilioinguinal nerve distribution spontaneously or following herniorrhaphy or other surgery. Primary ilioinguinal neuropathy may also cause abdominal muscle motor weakness resulting in direct hernia. We describe 12 patients with ilioinguinal nerve disorders and discuss therapeutic alternatives and results of treatment.
