Complex regional pain syndrome [CRPS] type II is characterized by variable dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal, skin, and vascular systems in association with the presence of clinical signs consistent with a definite peripheral nerve injury.
A 61-year-old female patient, diagnosed with CRPS type II following a right sciatic nerve injury due to intramuscular [IM] injection, suffered from severe pain, constant burning and tingling, edema, and foot-drop on her right extremity
Complex regional pain syndrome type II caused by sciatic nerve injury after an IM injection is a rare clinical complication, and pathophysiology of the disease still remains obscure.
