Diagnosis and Treatment of Erythromelagia

Man on Fire Syndrome

Erythromelagia is a rare and potentially devastating syndrome associated with severe heat and burning pain, and redness involving the skin of the hands or feet or both. The study of this disorder has led to the discovery of new insights into pain pathophysiology as well as new treatments. This course will describe not only the syndrome but how we may be able to apply the insights learned from studying this disorder to the treatment of pain. (Recorded at PAINWeek 2017)
