Abstract

Complex regional pain syndrome is a chronic condition arising mainly after tissue injury and involves both inflammatory and neurogenic factors. Use of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors has been associated with an increased risk of developing the chronic pain condition, which suggests possible roles for substance P and bradykinin in the underlying pathogenic process.
