Abstract

Erythromelalgia is a rare clinical condition of unknown etiology characterized by severe burning pain in the distal limbs. It can be accompanied by pronounced erythema and increased skin temperature precipitated by heat or activity and can be improved by cooling the affected part. It can be divided into two categories, primary, which begins spontaneously at any age, and secondary, which is infrequently associated with diabetes mellitus. However, the significance of this association is little known. We report a rare case of intractable erythromelalgia in an adolescent with diabetes mellitus.
