One hundred fifty successful blockades of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh according to the technique of Eriksson with 7-10 ml prilocaine 1% or bupivacaine 0.25% for meralgia paresthetica resulted unexpectedly in 4 cases of complete and 5 cases of partial motor block of the femoral nerve. The fully reversible paralysis or paresis of parts of the lower limb following blockade of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh is explained as a partial 3-in-1 block.
