ilioinguinal nerve

a nerve that provides cutaneous innervation to the upper medial thigh, the root of the penis and the anterior surface of the scrotum in men, or the mons pubis and labia majora in women. Through its course, it also supplies branches to the abdominal musculature.

ilioinguinal nerve

A sensory nerve originating in the lumbar plexus and composed of axons from spinal cord segment L1. It runs with the spermatic cord (in males) or the round ligament (in females) through the internal inguinal ring to the skin of the scrotum or labium majus. It innervates the skin of the proximal and medial thigh and of the scrotum or labium majus.
