Overview

The abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES) consists of pain caused by entrapment of the abdominal segmental nerves within the rectus abdominis muscle. Intercostal neuralgia appears to be a restricted form of ACNES.

According to one clinician, " Abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome (ACNES) may sound like an esoteric condition rarely seen by clinicians but is a common condition. When a patient is seen for abdominal pain without other clinically significant symptoms, ACNES should be high on the list of likely diagnoses." [From Applegate 2002---see reference below.]
