Ilıopsoas Syndrome: A Frequently Overlooked Phenomenon

Journal Authors: 


Iliopsoas syndrome is a functional problem of iliopsoas muscle which is usually overlooked despite to the careful physical examination. Iliopsoas syndrome may occur due to the shortening, weakening or spasm of iliopsoas muscle. It may present clinically as reflected pain in pelvic, toracolumbar, lumbosacral, sacroiliac, hip, groin or anterior thigh region, disorders of gait and/or posture problems. Here in this case report, I aimed to present a 33 year old woman with iliopsoas syndrome which was overlooked for five years and to review literatüre accompained with this patient, and also call attention to different nomenclature in literature and contribute to creating a common nomenclature for this disease.
