Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a pain disorder accompanied by autonomic dysfunction and trophic changes. Although CRPS is a common condition, it can be unrecognized if it occurs during pregnancy. The pathogenetic mechanism of the disease is still unclear. The hip is the most common site of involvement in pregnancy. In this report, we present a 34-year-old female who suffered from pain and swelling in her foot and ankle at the third trimester of pregnancy. We examined the patient at the postpartum period and established the diagnosis of CRPS. © Turkish Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

OBJECTIVES: In this study, we aimed to review the demographic and other characteristics of our small cell lung cancer cases. METHODS: This is a single-centered, retrospective study. The cases of small cell lung carcinoma were examined at the Medical Oncology Unit between January 2008 and May 2011. RESULTS: All of the patients were male, and the mean age was 57.9±13.3 years. The distribution stage data showed that 12 patients were in the limited stage and 18 were in the common stage. The performance of the patients was good in general: 43% of Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status Scale (ECOG-PS) was 1 and 30% of ECOG-PS as 0. When the stage-based performance status was analyzed, a significant difference between the common stage and limited stage was determined (mean ECOG-PS: 0.5-1.3, respectively, p=0.027). With respect to the average age, there was a significant difference between the limited stage and common stage (65.3-53.0, respectively, p=0.01). CONCLUSION: In our study, the ECOG-PS of limited-stage patients was found to be significantly better than of extensive-stage patients. However, the number of patients was insufficient. It was also determined in our study that patients with extensive-stage disease had a significantly low average age. © 2012 Association of Oncology.
