(427) Could depression be a causative factor in the development of CRPS types I?

CRPS (Complex regional pain syndrome) is a debilitating pain disorder characterized by allodynia, hyperalgesia and trophic changes. It has been sub classified into CRPS type I and type II. While CRPS type II is considered to be caused by a prior nerve injury, CRPS type I, also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy is a poorly understood medical condition with no definitive identifiable etiology. Studies have shown that patients with depression have an increased rate of having chronic pain, including CRPS.
