Abstract

Complex regional pain syndrome type I, also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, is a multisymptom syndrome usually affecting one or more extremities. Etiology is not being solved completely, but uncontrolled sympathetic activity and inflammatory response following soft tissue and nevre injury is thought to be the main cause of this disease. Common symptoms are pain and tenderness to palpation and evidence of autonomic nervous dysfunction in an extremity. There is not one single successfull treatment approach to complex regional pain syndrome and if the treatment of patient is not enough, major problems in patients social life may be occured. In this study, social aspect and life care planning of complex regional pain syndrome type I were discussed.
