Abstract

Meralgia paresthetica (MP) is a disesthetic and/or anesthetic syndrome in the distribution of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. It is a compressive or traumatic mononeuropathy, characterized by burning pain and/or discomfort in the anterolateral thigh, without motor or muscle strength changes, with preserved reflexes. The authors report the case of a 52-year-old male with a history of low back pain presented from two-year sensory dysesthesias and paresthesias in the right anterolateral thigh, consistent with meralgia paresthetica; they also describe the first reported use of O2O3 therapy to relieve the intractable pain associated with MP.
