Abstract

The piriformis syndome is a rare condition characterized by pain and paresthesia in the buttock, often radiating to the posterior thigh. Symptoms are made worse by hip adduction and internal rotation of the hip joint. We report two cases of piriformis syndrome caused by an atypical sciatic nerve pathway combined with hamstring hypertrophy.
