Meralgia paresthetica (MP) is painful mononeuropathy of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN). The LFCN originates from the roots of the second and third lumbar nerves and innervates the skin on the anterolateral part of the thigh. MP presents with a burning sensation, pain, numbness, and tingling on this part of the thigh. Many different factors are reported as etiologies. The most common are positional mechanical compression, anterior hip surgery, thigh injury, disk herniation, and the use of tight corsets or tight belts. We report a case of MP due to extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL).
