Algodystrophy or complex regional pain syndrome is a locoregional microcirculatory disorder combining vasomotor and trophic pain phenomena, resulting from a neuro-vegetative disturbance, most often in response to local aggression. It can be idiopathic. The object of our work is to report a case of post-traumatic algodystrophy of the wrist in an adolescent, given the rarity of this disease in this age group, and to review the various clinical and radiological signs that guide the diagnosis.
