Iliohypogastric Nerve

Adel K. Afifi, MD, MS
Ryosuke Miyauchi, MD

Peer Review Status: Internally Peer Reviewed

The iliac branch of the iliohypogastric nerve may be absent, replaced by the lateral cutaneous branch of the twelfth thoracic nerve.

The hypogastric branch may supply the pyramidalis muscle and may be joined with the twelfth thoracic nerve.

The iliohypogastric nerve is sometimes derived from the twelfth thoracic nerve and may also receive a root from the eleventh thoracic nerve.
