Iliacus tear

This is an unusual injury. This patient was a footballer who was injured during a match but couldn’t say what the mechanism was. The Iliacus swells considerably after the tear due to associated oedema. This streches the overlying nerves and these patients almost invariably complain of thigh dysaesthesia or parasthesia due to streching of the femoral branch of the genitofemoral nerve.
