PMID: 36074049.


Pudendal and inferior cluneal nerve entrapment can cause a neuropathic pain syndrome in the sensitive areas innervated by these nerves. Diagnosis is challenging and patients often suffer several years before diagnosis is made. The purpose of the review was to inform healthcare workers about this disease and to provide a basis of anatomy and physiopathology, to inform about diagnostic tools and invasive or non-invasive treatment modalities and outcome.
