Abstract

The pirifonnis syndrome is a rare and disputed cause of sciatica secondary to sciatic nerve entrapment at the greater sciatic notch due to an abnormal condition of the piriformis muscle. The symptoms present almost identically to lumbar disk syndrome. The cause of piriformis syndrome is still obscure even if several mechanisms have been hypothised. The diagnosis is primarily clinical as no investigation has proved to be definitive. We present a case of piriformis syndrome documented by MRI and treated successfully with conservative physiotherapic menagement.
