The five documented differences between children and adults with CRPS are 1) a higher prevalence among females, 2) increased incidence in the lower extremity, 3) cooler temperature of the affected limb, 4) less obvious sudomotor symptoms, and 5) more influential psychological factors (Low, Ward, & Wines, 2007; Tan et al.
Original International Association for the Study of Pain (Orlando) diagnostic criteria for complex regional pain syndrome 1) The presence of an initiating noxious event or a cause of immobilization 2) Continuing pain, allodynia, or hyperalgesia with which the pain is disproportionate to any inciting event 3) Evidence at some time of edema, changes in skin blood flow, or abnormal sudomotor activity in the region of pain 4) This diagnosis is excluded by the existence of conditions that would otherwise account for the degree of pain and dysfunction Table 2.

In contrast to research in animal models of PD, only one study examined biological outcomes of psychological stress, specifically sympathetic skin responses (SSR), a biomarker of sympathetic cholinergic sudomotor function associated with autonomic dysfunction [62].
Acute CRPS was assessed in patients with antecedent trauma or neurological injury with the pertinent findings of a painful, unilateral, hot, and swollen arm or hand and wrist, sudomotor changes, capsular thickening of joints, and loss of range of motion in multiple joints of the hand, wrist, or shoulder.
A possibility of complex regional pain syndrome was strongly considered as the patient fulfilled the Budapest diagnostic criteria; he had continuing pain disproportionate to the inciting event, hyperalgesia, vasomotor changes in the form of rise in temperature of the hands, sudomotor changes in the form of oedema of hands, and motor finding of decreased range of motion at wrist and small joints of hands.
2,12) It is generally believed to be a polysynaptic reflex generated in the deep layers of the skin by activation of sweat glands via sudomotor sympathetic efferent fibers.

Additionally, it has been argued in many case reports and studies that sudomotor innervation can be undertaken by parasympathetic fibers when the sympathetic fibers recessed (20,24).
