BRUSCAS IZU, C. et al. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy: psychological and psychopathological aspects. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2001, vol.18, n.1, pp.38-44. ISSN 0212-7199.

 It has traditionally been accepted that a predisposing psychological field exists with the appearance of the reflex sympathetic dystrophy. Nevertheless, there is no unaminous agreement in this interpretation, since surveys exist wich are in favour the reactive character of the psychological effect on reflex sympathetic dystrophy. In this study, we revise literature already published on the subject, present arguments on the psychological evaluation tests carried out to date and propose the possibility of using other test wich are easier to manage  and to interpret. 

Palabras clave : Reflex sympathetic dystrophy; Algodystrophy; Pain; Psychology; Psychiatry.
