Extract

Nerve injuries associated with disruptions of the pelvic ring usually occur posteriorly as the nerve roots exit from the sacrum or cross over the sacral alae7,21. I report here the case of a patient who had late anterior entrapment of the obturator nerve at the site of a healing fracture of the pubic ramus that was associated with a lateral compression injury of the pelvic ring.
