Neuralgic pain caused by entrapment of peripheral nerves is an often overlooked cause of chronic pelvic pain. The objective of the present study was to assess pain and quality of life in women with pain caused by entrapment of the ilioinguinal nerve, iatrogenic after surgery but also found without previous surgery. In a controlled prospective cross-over study 19 women were randomized either to medical treatment or to resection of the nerve. Statistically significant improvements were found after surgical resection.

A chronic PELVIC PAIN characterized by pain deep in the buttock that may radiate to posterior aspects of the leg. It is caused by the piriformis muscle compressing or irritating the SCIATIC NERVE due to trauma, hypertrophy, inflammation or anatomic variations.
A complex network of nerve fibers in the pelvic region. The hypogastric plexus distributes sympathetic fibers from the lumbar paravertebral ganglia and the aortic plexus, parasympathetic fibers from the pelvic nerve, and visceral afferents. The bilateral pelvic plexus is in its lateral extent.
Pain in the pelvic region of genital and non-genital origin and of organic or psychogenic etiology. Frequent causes of pain are distension or contraction of hollow viscera, rapid stretching of the capsule of a solid organ, chemical irritation, tissue ischemia, and neuritis secondary to inflammatory, neoplastic, or fibrotic processes in adjacent organs.

Discomfort associated with the bones that make up the pelvic girdle. It occurs frequently during pregnancy.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
