Do burn injuries during infancy affect pain and sensory sensitivity in later childhood?


Studies in animals and humans suggest that neonatal and early infant pain or stress experiences can induce long-term alterations in somatosensory and pain processing. We studied pain and sensory sensitivity in school-aged children (9-16 years) who had suffered moderate (N=24) or severe (N=24) burn injuries in infancy (6-24 months of age) and 24 controls… (More)
