A ganglion impar block was applied to a 15 year old obese boy with coccydynia of 2-year duration. It was decided to perform the block via trans-sacrococcygeal joint rather than extra-coccygeal approach. 5 days later he reported significant improvement in symptoms by 50% that persisted at 12-month follow-up.
