Abstract

The transverse acetabular ligament is an unusual location for ganglion cysts. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. They can be asymptomatic and represent an incidental finding or can cause an atypical pattern of hip joint/groin pain. We report a case of ganglion cyst arising from the TAL causing entrapment of the anterior branch of the obturator nerve with associated acute denervation of the abductor longus (AL), adductor brevis (AB), and gracilis muscles. . . . Keywords Obturator nerve entrapment Anterior branch Transverse acetabular ligament Ganglion cyst Introduction We report the first case of a GC arising from the TAL causing isolated entrapment of the anterior branch of the ob- Ganglion cysts (GC) are fluid-filled synovial lined lesions turator nerve and consequent acute muscular denervation. usually described in close association to the joint capsules, The obturator nerve arises from the L2, L3, and L4 rami of tendon sheaths, and ligaments. GC around the hip represent the lumbar plexus. It follows the iliopectineal line, then runs a relatively common finding [1, 2]. Those arising from the within the obturator canal and exits the pelvis through the joint capsule have usually been reported as extending from obturator foramen
