Abstract

We present a kindred of 29 persons affected with erythromelalgia (erythermalgia) in 5 generations. This paper updates the family reported by Burbank et al. [1966]. Patients have symptoms of intermittent intense burning limb pain related to increased skin temperature. No successful treatment has been identified, and the pathogenetic mechanism has not been established. Most affected individuals are female.
