A 54-year-old male suffered from direct head trauma resulting from a fall while working. At approximately two months after the accident, he began to feel pain (burning sensation) and swelling of the dorsum of the right hand and wrist. He showed the following clinical features among the clinical signs and symptoms of revised diagnostic criteria for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS): spontaneous pain, mechanical hyperalgesia, vasodilation, skin temperature asymmetries, skin color changes… Expand
Delayed development of aphasia related to degeneration of the arcuate fasciculus in the dominant hemisphere nine years after the onset in a patient with intracerebral hemorrhage: a case report
TLDR
The results suggest that DTT would be useful in ruling out neural degeneration of the AF in the dominant hemisphere. Expand
Complex regional pain syndrome: a narrative review for the practising clinician.
TLDR
This work reviews recent developments in the understanding of CRPS and advancements in management of this syndrome and suggests that further research in targeting specific mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology ofCRPS should lead to prevention of this condition. Expand
The Usefulness of Diffusion Tensor Tractography in Diagnosing Neuropathic Pain: A Narrative Review
TLDR
DTT may be beneficial in identifying the pathophysiological mechanism of NP of various origins including central pain caused by brain injuries, trigeminal neuralgia, sciatica, and some types of headache. Expand
Structural Characteristic of the Arcuate Fasciculus in Patients with Fluent Aphasia Following Intracranial Hemorrhage: A Diffusion Tensor Tractography Study
TLDR
The structural difference of the AF in patients following ICH in the left hemisphere was associated with various types of fluent aphasia, and the structural characteristics of the left arcuate fasciculus reconstructed using diffusion tensor image (DTI) were investigated. Expand
Pain in the Developing Brain: Early Life Factors Alter Nociception and Neurobiological Function in Adolescent Rats
TLDR
The effects of a high-fat, high-sugar (HFHS) diet and early life stress (maternal separation] on pain outcomes in male and female adolescent rats were examined to examine the trauma–pain relationship in early life or the underlying mechanisms that drive pathology over time. Expand

Central Pain Due to Injury of the Spinothalamic Tract Misdiagnosed as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome: A Case Report
TLDR
Injury of the STT was demonstrated on DTT in a patient with central pain following whiplash injury, but who was misdiagnosed as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Expand

Diagnostic Approach to Traumatic Axonal Injury of the Spinothalamic Tract in Individual Patients with Mild Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
An approach for the diagnosis of traumatic axonal injury of the spinothalamic tract (STT) that was based on diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) results and a statistical comparison of individual patients who showed central pain following mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) with the control group is demonstrated.

A case of reflex sympathetic dystrophy (complex regional pain syndrome, type I) resolved by cerebral contusion
TLDR
A case of refractory reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) whose symptoms were resolved after the patient suffered a traumatic cerebral contusion in the left temporal lobe suggests that symptoms of some RSD patients may be largely sustained by a complex network involving the brain. Expand

TLDR
Performances of follow-up TPBS may be useful to diagnose CPRS-I in uncertain cases of the early acute stage after a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Expand

Functional Role of the Corticoreticular Pathway in Chronic Stroke Patients
TLDR
The increased fiber volume of the CRP in the unaffected hemisphere seems to be related to walking ability in patients with chronic stroke, and the compensation of theCRP inThe unaffected hemisphere seem to be one of the mechanisms for recovery of walking ability after stroke. Expand
