AimsTo describe a series of piriformis syndrome patient among Bangladesh people with literature review.MethodsConsecutive 31 piriformis syndrome patients were enrolled. Besides history and clinical examination, piriformis muscle thickness was also measured with diagnostic ultrasound (3.5 MHZ). MRI of lumbar spine, X-rays of lumbo-sacral spine, and pelvis were performed in all patients. Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), Windows 8.0, was used for statistical calculation, and… 
Four symptoms define the piriformis syndrome: an updated systematic review of its clinical features
Piriformis syndrome is at a stage previously encountered with herniated intervertebral disc: its prevalence among low back pain and sciatica sufferers and the diagnostic accuracy of clinical features requires cross-sectional studies free of incorporation and verification biases.
Ultrasound appears to be a reliable technique for the diagnosis of piriformis syndrome
This study aimed to assess the value of ultrasound (US) in the diagnosis of PS and found that on US and MRI, the thickness and CSA were increased in PS patients.
Piriformis pyomyositis, a cause of piriformis syndrome—a systematic search and review
To treat the piriformis pyomyositis, broad-spectrum antibiotics were found to be useful; however, sometimes, antibiotic switching was warranted based on blood and tissue aspirate reports.
Management of a patient with myofascial pain syndrome (piriformis syndrome): clinical follow-up
A clinical case of treatment of one of the variants of myofascial pain syndrome – piriformis syndrome without signs of sciatic nerve neuropathy, where a positive effect was achieved as a result of the use of complex, pathogenetically based therapy.

Complementary Specific Pelvic Sequences on Routine Lumbar Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scans: An Imaging-Based Study Focused on Piriformis Syndrome.
Adding just three specific pelvic sequences to routine lumbar MRI scans were enough to accurately delineate the piriformis muscle pathologies and sciatic nerve intensities and can salvage underdiagnosed patients with PS and facilitate early detection of this pathological condition.


Brief review: Piriformis syndrome: etiology, diagnosis, and management
The pathophysiology and diagnostic criteria of the piriformis syndrome is provided, an underdiagnosed cause of buttock and leg pain that can be difficult to treat and frequencies of clinical features are estimated in patients reported to have PS.

There were insufficient numbers to calculate a frequency for the FAIR test, however, other signs of sciatic nerve impingement were present in 32–74 % and there was limited evidence for the effectiveness of botulinum toxin injection.
Development of Unilateral Piriformis Syndrome in a Female with Congenital Leg Length Discrepancy
A 22-year-old female soldier who was admitted for lower back pain with soreness radiating to her right buttock and right lower extremity found that she had leg length discrepancy under X-ray finding, which might be caused by short-term compensation in congenital leglength discrepancy.
A rare cause of a piriformis syndrome.
" short leg" is one of the rare causes of piriformis syndrome and can be seen alone or with the other causes, and the injection on Piriformis muscle could be more effective for the patients who have PS after the "short leg" treated.
Piriformis syndrome: diagnosis, treatment, and outcome--a 10-year study.
The FAIR test correlates well with a working definition of piriformis syndrome and is a better predictor of successful physical therapy and surgery than the working definition.
Variations of the piriformis and sciatic nerve with clinical consequence: A review
Because the prevalence of the anomaly in piriformis syndrome patients is not significantly different from what is thought to be a normal population, it indicates that this anomaly may not be as important in the pathogenesis of piriformIS syndrome as previously thought.

Leg length discrepancy as a rare cause of a piriformis syndrome.
Two female patients with piriformis syndrome who had a shorter leg on the effected side were presented and it was concluded that a “short leg” is one of the rarer causes of PS and it can be seen alone or in combination with other causal factors.
