18 patients who had Sudeck's atrophy of the foot, were treated with intravenous injections of a solution of 1% xylocaine and solu-medrol followed by standard physical therapy. The results were excellent or good in 14 extremities (77.8%) and poor in 4 (22.2%). The causes of Sudeck's atrophy were femur fr. in 1 case, lower leg fr. in 6, foot fr. in 9 and foot trauma in 2. 14 cases had clinical findings only, while 4 had clinical findings with radiographic changes. Clinical findings appeared at ave. 5.8ws. after trauma and radiographic findings appeared at ave. 8.4ws. after trauma. We reported both clinical and radiographic findings.
