Introduction: Injection nerve palsy (INP) occurs when there is injury to peripheral nerves after accidental injections of drugs by intramuscular root. INP after having intramuscular injections (IMI) can be traced back more than 100 years ago.
Objective: To conduct nerve conduction studies of Sciatic and radial nerve after intramuscular injections in gluteus and deltoid regions.
Material and Methods: A total of 40 patients were investigated as referred from various departments of our college and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies were done to know the amount and distributive pattern of nerve injuries using Allengers Scorpio 4 channel machine.
Results: Mean age of the patients was 20.9 years. Out of 40 patients, patients showed sciatic nerve involvement while patients were having radial nerve involvement. 28 (70%) Patients came back within one year of post injection history while 12 (30%) patients reported after more than one year.
Conclusion: The sole aim of our study was to define the distributive pattern of nerve injuries in Mewat region and to signify the importance of NCV studies in treatment and prognosis.

Keywords: INP (Injection Nerve Palsy). NCV (Nerve Conduction Velocity), IMI (Intramuscular Injection).
