Abstract

Compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (LFCN) in the thigh, commonly referred to as meralgia paresthetica, may be due to obesity, tight clothing and other external factors. We report two cases of meralgia paresthetica due to compression of the LFCN by portable electronic or “smart” devices.
