Genital Femoral Nerve

- Discussion:
    - arises from L1  and L2;
    - in abdomen, it descends on anterior surface of Psoas and then divides into genital and femoral branches;
    - genital branch innervates cremaster muscle and gives twigs to scrotum and adjacent thigh;
    - femoral branch passes under inguinal ligament & supplies skin of femoral triangle
