Intragluteal injection

Most Intramuscular injections are given by intragluteal method, i.e. through the gluteal muscles

gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, gluteus minimus.

But the sciatic nerve  is placed at the gluteal region covered by the gluteal muscles. This nerve must be avoided for injection into it is likely to lead to paralysis of the muscles it supplies which are the muscles of the posterior compartment of the lower limb. It is avoided by given the injection at the upper outer quadrant of the gluteal region.
