Description

Despite the long history of descriptions of reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), much confusion remains regarding its pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment. It most commonly occurs after trauma and is more frequent in women, white persons, and the elderly. The first case of RSD after mastectomy is reported and the proposed pathophysiology and management of RSD are reviewed.
