Abstract

Three pregnant women presented with disabling lower abdominal wall pain unresponsive to conventional therapies. The striking similarities among the clinical signs and symptoms prompted a review of the literature and led to the suspicion of thoracic lateral cutaneous nerve entrapment, a syndrome reported in other conditions, including after surgery, but not during pregnancy. Treatment by nerve block with local anesthetics was rapidly and completely successful in relieving the symptoms.
