We present a case report of an ultrasound-guided femoral nerve block in a seven-year-old patient with an aberrant femoral nerve. The utilization of ultrasonography enabled the identification and successful blockade of an aberrant femoral nerve within the belly of the iliopsoas muscle. A review of the literature regarding aberrant femoral nerve anatomy is included.
