Erythromelalgia, formerly known as Mitchell's disease (after Silas Weir Mitchell), is a rare vascular peripheral pain disorder in which blood vessels, usually in the lower extremities or hands, are episodically blocked (frequently on and off daily), then become hyperemic and inflamed. There is severe burning pain (in the small fiber sensory nerves) and skin lty: Cardiology. Erythromelalgia is a medical condition where an individual experiences acute burning pain, marked redness (erythema), with increase in the temperature of the skin, especially of the feet and hands. Erythromelalgia is also considered a type of neuropathic pain syndrome where the pain is associated with medical conditions that affect the nerves themselves. Know the causes, signs, .
Erythromelalgia (EM) is a rare condition of unknown etiology that results in intense, burning pain and redness primarily of the feet, and, even more rarely, in the hands. Most cases are idiopathic (primary EM); others occur secondary to medical conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, and neurological or hematological disorders. Symptoms are episodic and can result in severe disability.

Ingesting alcohol or spicy foods may also trigger an episode. Option 1. Single-gene ce analysis of SCN9A is performed first to detect small intragenic deletions/insertions and missense, nonsense, and splice site variants.
Depending on the sequencing method used, (multi)exon or whole-gene deletions/duplications may not be detected. If no variant is detected by the sequencing method used, the next step is typically to perform gene-targeted Cited by: 7.
