|Diagram of the segmental distribution of the cutaneous nerves of the right lower extremity. Posterior view. (Sural labeled in purple at bottom right.)|
|Latin||nervus cutaneus surae medialis|
|Gray's||subject #213 962|
The medial sural cutaneous nerve descends between the two heads of the Gastrocnemius, and, about the middle of the back of the leg, pierces the deep fascia, and unites with the anastomotic ramus of the common peroneal to form the sural nerve.
