The lateral cutaneous branch (iliac branch) pierces the Obliqui internus and externus immediately above the iliac crest, and is distributed to the skin of the gluteal region, behind the lateral cutaneous branch of the last thoracic nerve; the size of this branch bears an inverse proportion to that of the lateral cutaneous branch of the last thoracic nerve.
