For my current PM&R rotation I am giving an informal 5-10min presentation on CRPS & wanted to know what the most useful information would be for the residents for board prep. For example should I focus on current treatment or more on presentation & differentials?

I would look up the Budapest criteria, Norman Harden, Michael Stanton-Hicks, and go over the clinical vs research criteria for the signs/symptoms.


you should cover all of the sections you mentioned

Oreo gave you a good article. 10-15min isnt much time. Hit the highlights for epidemiology. Might want to make the distinction of sympathetic mediated vs not sympathetic mediated CRPS. Underscore that basically the goal of treatments are to promote functional rehabilitation.
