Although there is an increased awareness of and treatment of acute pain in infants and children, the lack of awareness on various chronic and persistent pains in children often leads to physicians/pediatricians pursuing an endless search for the underlying etiology of the discomfort. Continued lab investigations are undertaken for the sake of "completeness" to search for a biological explanation for the pain. The author would like to present this case report where there was no obvious cause for the pain found on investigations. The child was treated for neuropathic pain with complete recovery. Though complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) was suspected, the difficulty in establishing a diagnosis, convincing caregivers and compliance to pharmacotherapy are the major challenges in the pediatric pain patients.
