Abstract

Complex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS-1) is a clinical syndrome that affects one or more extremeties and is characterised by persistent pain disproportionate to any inciting events, and at least one sign of autonomic dysfunction in the affected limb(s). Enhanced awareness of this syndrome and its potential to occur following immunisation in the paediatric population is vital to the prompt and effective management of this condition.
