Abstract

Osteitis pubis, a rare condition, is characterized by pelvic pain, localized over the symphysis pubis, in the lower abdominal muscles or in the perineum. The pain may radiate to the adductor region of the thigh, and patients may describe painful adductor muscle spasms. Aggravating factors are walking and standing from a seated position. It can often be missed, and if present in patients who present with an inguinal hernia, it is a risk factor for chronic pain complaints. If osteitis is suspected in patients with an inguinal hernia, it should be worked up and treated before recommending surgical repair for the inguinal hernia.
