Abstract

The effective treatment of patients suffering from a variety of difficult pain syndromes, including phantom pain and other neuropathic pains, remainsa clinical challenge. Neuropathic pain has been shown to respond to drugs that block the N-methyl-D-asparate (NMDA) receptor, such as ketamine and amantidine. A 44-year-old woman with a previous right-sided forequarter amputation presented to the Palliative Medicine Team complaining of neuropathic pain in her left arm, which was neurologically intact. The pain was treatedwith repeated infusions of intravenous ketamine. Twenty-one infusions weregiven over a period of four months. The pain intensity experienced by the patient lessened at the frequency of the ketamine infusions increased. Thisfinding has not been described previously and supports the theory that there may be an optimum frequency of ketamine infusions to achieve adequate pain control.
