Abstract

Background: Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) has been described as a painful condition with the appearance of trophic, vasomotor, and sudomotor changes. Most of the predisposing factors causing CRPS are classified. However, the definite cause of this syndrome is yet to be clearly specified in some cases. In this report, we presented a case with hand edema along with severe pain, diagnosed as CRPS type 1, coexisting with hepatitis B infection.
