Central neuropathic pain is frequent in syringomyelia but still poorly understood. One major question is the role of the spinothalamic tract system in central neuropathic pain.
To examine the relationship between a variety of neuropathic pain symptoms in patients with syringomyelia and functional and structural changes of their spinal cord sensory tracts.
This multimodal assessment of syringomyelia patients showed that distinct clinical presentations of central neuropathic pain were differently related to the functional and structural state of spinal sensory pathways.
