Algoneurodystrophy is a neurological defect that results in pain and sensory issues. There may be irregular blood flow and perspiration in the afflicted region, as well as difficulties with muscle action and changes in tissue structure.
Most pediatric patients with algoneurodystrophy describe burning pain, soreness, swelling, and changes in the skin color and temperature of a body region or leg with no apparent nerve injury. It can be caused by 50 percent of all injuries. There is no correlation between the severity of the damage and the amount of early trauma little initial trauma may go unreported. The interval between the damage and the onset varies from a few days to many weeks.
