? injection site neuroma

A patient developed pain in gluteal region after an injection given wrongly by a quack in upper inner quadrant region one and half years back. She has been having pain around that area and is getting worse day by day. How do we treat this? She has done warm compression, taken analgesics and topical ointments but nothing has helped Can it be a injection site neuroma? What would be medical management for this?


injection into a nerve would give rise to sharp shooting pain down the leg at the time of injection and later some deficit down the leg..if such a history, then it could be a neuroma..otherwise a local organized hematoma... hematoma can be excised neuroma can't be... u can give gabapentine in that case.. an ultrasound can be done to find organized hematoma if suspected

Thank you doctor
