Prevalence of CRPS Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Seventy-four cases of CRPS I were identified, resulting in an incidence rate of 5.46 per 100,000 person years at risk, and a period prevalence of 20.57 per 100,000. Female:male ratio was 4:1, with a median age of 46 years at onset. Upper limb was affected twice as commonly as lower limb.

Not realy aware though have learnt it can effect male and female, young and old.

A study done by Mayo Clinic in 2003 reviewed records from 1989-1999 and found an incidence rate of 5.46 per 100,000 person. A Dutch study placed the incidence rate at 26.2 per 100,000. The lack of prevalence of registered patients may underestimate the true prevalence of CRPS by 50%.
Female:male ratio was 4:1, with a median age of 46 years at onset.
Upper limb was affected twice as commonly as lower limb. All cases reported an antecedent event and fracture was the most common trigger (46%).
The National Institutes of Health have estimated that 2-5% of people who have a peripheral nerve injury (such as a sprain or fracture, bullet wound, cut or needle stick) will develop CRPS.

CRPS can affect anyone and is quite common of those people who come under the chronic pain spectrum

Very low. Less than 200k per year get it. 90% of people have type 1 and 10% have type 2. Type 2 is the worse diagnosis of the 2.

It is rare approximation less than 200,000 people are diagnosed yearly. It affects men, women children and there are no boundaries. It is not as likely in young kids, seems to be diagnosed in adults over the ages of 20 and up

I've read that there are about 200,000 cases diagnosed each year, making it fairly rare. It seems to affect women more than men, adults more than children, with women above age 30 being the most frequently diagnosed.

This is a rare disease starting at age 14.

It seems to be uncommon. I don't know if it affects men more than women or children more than adults.

CRPS doesn't discriminate -- it's a disease for all. Women are most at risk, but I think that's only because we are more likely to admit pain. Sadly children also get this beast.
Its more common in adults but children tend to respond best to treatment.

I have looked at many statistics and found different opinions. What I saw was women are three times more likely than men. Teenager's have lower incidence than adults. And there are around 200,000 a year in the U.S. who suffer. It is a rare condition.

26.2 out of every 100,000 people are affected by CRPS. Three times more women get it than men. Children can get is but it is a very low percentage.
