This review summarises the treatment of meralgia paraesthetica. The condition is easy to recognise clinically, and in most cases the effect of conservative treatment is good. In case of persistent symptoms, further work-up is recommended including neurophysiological testing and ultrasound examination. If surgery is decided, we recommend nerve decompression primarily, since this procedure holds a success rate of 60-70%. In case of persistent symptoms, neurectomy should be performed. Ultrasound examination immediately before surgery can be helpful in localising the nerve and shortening procedural time.
