Abstract. We treated 19 patients with piriformis muscle syndrome. All patients complained of pain in the buttocks and the posterior thigh. Clinically the buttock was tender and passive stretching increased the pain. In ten patients skin sensation was reduced and three had a limp. All patients were treated with tenotomy. At follow-up after an average of 8 (1–16) years, eight patients had pain relief. Two-thirds of the patients evaluated their clinical state as being better.Résumé. Nous avons traité 19 malades avec un syndrome du muscle pyramidal par ténotomie. Tous les malades se plaignaient de douleurs de fesse et la face postérieure de cuisse. Cliniquement la fesse était souple et l'étirement passif augmentait la douleur. Dix malades souffraient d'une hypoesthésie cutanée et trois boitaient. Après un délai moyen de 8 (1–16) années, huit malades étaient indolores. Deux tiers des malades ont évalué leur état clinique comme amélioré par l'intervention.
