The records of 824 complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) patients referred in January 1991 to January 1996 are reviewed in this article, and the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches are compared with studies reported in the medical literature. At least two follow-up visits were required to enable a patient to be included in the study. Problems of terminology and over- and underdiagnosis are discussed.
