Abstract

A case of right-sided ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric neuralgia following laparoscopic repair in a 52-year-old man is presented. Significant pain persisted despite conservative measures and was successfully treated with resection of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves in the retroperitoneal space. The anatomy, mechanisms of injury, and management of postherniorrhaphy neuropathy are reviewed.
