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

Abstract

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)
