Abstract

The posterior femoral cutaneous nerve is a nerve from the sacral plexus. It arises partly from the dorsal divisions of the first and second, and from the ventral divisions of the second and third sacral nerves. Its branches are all cutaneous, and are distributed to the gluteal region, the perineum, and the back of the thigh and leg. In the present case we observed unusual muscular branches from the posterior femoral cutaneous nerve innervating the gluteus maximus which is not mentioned in the literature earlier.
