Clinical Report

A case report and a review of a rare facial pain syndrome is presented. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS) is a condition that is commonly seen and treated by other health practitioners, but which is rarely seen by dental practitioners. Because many of the signs and symptoms of RSDS are similar to TMJ and other facial pain syndromes, it should bean important consideration in the differential diagnosis and selection of proper treatment.
