 Abstract. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) / Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a relatively rare neurologic disease.  In the recent years, there has been an increasing awareness about the illness.  The diagnosis of CRPS (RSD) is a diagnosis by inclusion rather than exclusion. Careful history taking, neurological evaluation, and understanding the nature of the components of CRPS (RSD) spares the patient from misdiagnosis and improper treatment.
