What is it?

The nerves in the ilioinguinal area may be easily injured by blunt force trauma or by becoming trapped between muscles or in case of a scar tissue, resulting in chronic pain. The ilioinguinal nerve block with local anesthetic and steroids is useful in the treatment of persistent pain after inguinal surgery or groin trauma when the pain is thought to be secondary to inflammation or entrapment of the ilioinguinal nerve.
