Pain sensations associated with central pain synvrome are generally spontaneous, which means they occur despite no apparent cause or trigger.


Recently, magnetic resonance imaging has been utilized to correlate lesion size and location with area affected and severity of condition. It is now accepted that Dejerine—Roussy syndrome is a condition developed due to lesions interfering with the sensory process, which triggered the start of pharmaceutical and stimulation treatment research.

Affected Populations Central pain syndrome is estimated to affect several million people worldwide. Extradural cortical stimulation for central pain. An MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce cross-sectional images of particular organs and bodily tissues.
