Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) (Synonyms: Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Causalgia, Sudeck's atrophy, Algodystrophy) is a chronic neurological condition, usually involving the limbs, that is characterized by severe pain along with sensory, autonomic, motor and trophic involvement. CRPS type ll is when there is an identifiable preceding event causing nerve damage. We present 2 unusual cases: 1. spontaneous bleeding from left leg associated with recurrent infections 2. a calcified mass in abdominal wall with recurrent infections. Recurrent soft tissue infections are rare in CRPS. Both presentations were unique.
