Abstract

CRPS may be considered a functional disorder of the spinal cord that involves to varying degrees the dorsal and ventral horns, as well as the inter mediolateral columns, so as to produce sensory, motor, and autonomic abnormalities1.CRPS may be triggered by a variety of insults such as trauma, surgery, inflammation, stroke ,nerve injury, and immobilization. The syndrome occurs frequently in young adults and more in women than men. No correlation exists between the severity of injury and the resulting painful syndrome2. Patients with certain neoplasms of lung, breast, central nervous system, ovary and patients suffering from stroke or myocardial infarction may exhibits signs and symptoms of CRPS. Even psychological stressors and poor coping skills can influence the natural history and severity of CRPS3.
