Abstract. Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is usually caused by a minor injury, and requires proper evaluation and multi-disciplinary treatment addressing the multifaceted pathological processes that evolve during its chronic course. Patientís age, the nature of pathology, and mode of therapy influence the outcome of treatment. If at all possible, surgery, ice and cast applications should be avoided. There is a desperate need for research in proper management of CRPS.

Descriptors. complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), internal organs, spread, surgery, sympathetically maintained pain (SMP).

We hope  that this article will be helpful to you.

All our best!
