Chronic neuropathic pain due to iliohypogastric (IH) or ilioinguinal (IL) nerve entrapment or injury may demonstrate as referred pain to the genito-urinary organs. Our patient is a 67-year-old woman who presented with a 9-month history of bladder pain, dyspareunia and nocturia that all began following a laparoscopic pyeloplasty. This report describes improvement of bladder pain syndrome following surgical resection of the II and IH nerves.
