Neuromas can result from any surgery and occur in 2.1% of patients with a Pfannenstiel incision. This etiology is frequently missed in patients who often have their complaints dismissed as psychosomatic. This case details a patient with pain from an ilioinguinal neuroma that was successfully diagnosed and treated using ultrasound.
