On December 15, 2001, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the NIH Office of Rare Diseases convened a workshop on Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Complex Regional Pain Syndromes (RSD/CRPS) chaired by Dr. Jon Levine (UCSF) and Dr. Cheryl Kitt (NINDS). The participants included neurologists, neuroscientists, patient advocates, and NINDS staff. The goal of the meeting was to bring together leading pain researchers to consider RSD/CRPS in the context of their own research paradigms, determine the state of the science, and identify new directions for research on this disorder.
