Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS) is a common but often unrecognized syndrome. It usually affects a leg or arm but may also be limited to parts of the extremity. We report a case of a 48-year-old patient who developed RSDS of only one finger. Especially, a limited form may delay recognition and therapy of a disease which can be treated successfully in an early phase.
