meralgia paresthetic

M Ferrà Verdera, H Ribera Leclerc, J P Garrido Pastor
We report two cases of meralgia paresthetica. The first patient was 35-year-old pregnant woman who reported dull pain on the front and side of her thigh presenting at 6 weeks gestation. The symptoms disappeared in 1 week with conservative treatment and no other symptoms developed. The second patient was a 56-year-old woman, obese, who reported intense, burning pain with numbness and occasional bouts of piercing pain. The symptoms were resistant to treatment with non-steroidal antiinflamatory drugs or mild opiates, but were relieved by injection of local anesthetics and corticosteroids...

INTRODUCTION: The neurophysiological approach to meralgia paresthetica (MP) deals with the possible abnormalities demonstrated in the peripheral nerve conduction and/or somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN). MATERIAL AND METHODS: To ascertain the diagnostic value of these methods, a group of 23 patients with unilateral MP symptoms has been studied; SEP of LFCN was also evaluated in a series of normal people. RESULTS: LFCN conduction was abnormal on the symptomatic side in 47...

Transcutaneous iontophoresis of microtubule inhibitors (Vinblastin, Vincristin, Formyl-Leurosin) in rats induces depletion of fluoride-resistant acid phosphatase (FRAP) and transganglionic degenerative atrophy (trggl. deg. atr.) of the central terminals of primary nociceptive neurons, probably via blockade of axoplasmic transport in the peripheral sensory nerves. Radiochemical experiments prove that about 0.2% of the microtubule inhibitors applied iontophoretically at the skin reach the level of nociceptive axon terminals...

The Author report the personal experience of 12 clinical cases of "meralgia paresthetica", an unusual neurological disease of the lateral femorocutaneous nerve of the thigh often accompained by strong pain, disesthesia and other similar symptoms. The block of the nerve is done with a "nerve detector" connected to a special needle and with the administration of a mixture of bupivacaine 1% with glucose (hyperbaric) and a fluorurate steroid, the triamcinolone acetonide. The results obtained with this technique appear to be better than a similar block without the "nerve detector" and a mixture of bupivacaine 0...

A clinical case of a 55-year-old man with syndrome of primary Sjögren, seronegative, normoglobulinemic and normocomplementary with 7 years of evolution, which developed acute lymphoblastic leukemia, having suffered recurrent lympho-adenopathy and paresthetic meralgia as previous clinical signs, is presented. Clinical, serological and immunologic characteristics of this syndrome are reviewed, highlighting its rare appearance among men. While appearance of malignant lymphoproliferation disorders is well known, evolution to acute or chronic myeloid leukemia is very rare and so far, an acute lymphoblastic leukemia as the one presented in this study has never been described...
