Özet

We present a five-year-old girl with congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis. A skeletal radiographic survey revealed several old fractures. Application of pilocarpine showed anhidrosis and nerve biopsy revealed a significant decrease in the number of myelinated and unmyelinated nerve fibres.
