  • &NA; Complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS I) is a chronic painful disease of one extremity that may develop as a disproportionate consequence of a trauma affecting the limbs without overt nerve injury. It is clinically characterized by sensory, motor and autonomic symptoms including vascular abnormalities. Previously, we have reported that pathophysiological alterations of the ongoing sympathetic activity play a crucial role in vasomotor disturbances (Brain 124 (2001) 587). As a… CONTINUE READING
