Post-traumatic hematoma of the iliopsoas muscle with femoral nerve entrapment:description of a rare occurrence in a professional cyclist.

Berlusconi M, Capitani D. Ital J Orthop Traumatol 1991 Dec;17(4):563-6.

The authors describe a case of iliopsoas muscle injury complicated by nerve entrapment, a rare occurrence both in the literature and in clinical experience. The diagnostic procedure excluded the many differential diagnoses possible. The authors prescribed conservative treatment which achieved nearly full recovery of the athlete approximately 6 months after injury.
