^ http://www.orpha.net/ORDO/Orphanet_1956


Erythromelalgia is a rare, genetic, peripheral neuropathy characterized by usually intermittent, often bilateral and symmetrical, paroxysmal hyperthermia of the extremities resulting in intense burning sensation, pain, elevated skin temperature, erythema, edema and numbness, which typically worsens with hot environments, exercise, and/or nighttime. Lower limbs are more commonly involved than upper ones, but face and trunk involvement have also been observed.
