Patient with neuropathic pain comprises up to 1% of population. As the underlying mechanism of neuropathic pain(NeP) is not fully understood, definition of NeP is not clearly established as well. Patients frequently complain their pain by diverse terms. Also, same symptom has different underlying mechanisms and same disease causes variable types of neuropathic pains. In this sense, traditional treatment of neuropathic pain targeted specific syndromes are not reasonable. Clinicians should know the specific treatment according to the mechanisms causing neuropathic pain. Treatment should be fit to their symptoms and signs representing mechanism.
Key words: Neuropathic pain, Mechanism, Treatment
