Abstract

Femoral nerve palsy due to iliacus hematoma has been reported previously1-4. Its incidence has increased because of the widespread use of anticoagulants and revision hip surgery. Surgical hematoma evacuation has been highly recommended in patients with coagulopathy5. In healthy patients with posttraumatic iliacus hematoma, previous case reports have revealed excellent results with conservative and surgical treatment for incomplete lesions4,6-11. This report describes the management of a case of complete femoral nerve palsy secondary to traumatic iliacus hematoma in a young patient. The patient and his parents were informed that data concerning the case would be submitted for publication, and they provided consent.
