Peripheral neuropathy secondary to entrapment of the nerves is not an uncommon etiology. Nerve entrapment is a common occurrence following trauma or surgery and pose significant diagnostic challenge. Entrapment neuropathy (EN) may not respond to standard neuropathic medication, and may need invasive treatment. Pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) application is a recent modality and is gaining popularity for many EN as it does not cause neural ablation unlike conventional radiofrequency ablation. In this report, we present a case of young patient who presented with severe lower lateral leg pain in whom superficial peroneal nerve (SPN) EN was suspected and diagnostic SPN injection under ultrasound guidance confirmed the diagnosis. He subsequently underwent PRF neuromodulation and experienced long-lasting pain relief.
