    Referred itch is the phenomenon in which a stimulus applied in one region of the body is felt as an itch or irritation in a different part of the body. The syndrome is relatively harmless, though it can be irritating, and healthy individuals can express symptoms. Stimuli range from a firm pressure applied to the skin – a scratch – to irritation or pulling on a hair follicle on the names: Mitempfindung. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is the most common neurological side effect of chemotherapy and is characterized by damage to the nervous system that is a direct result of the medications associated with chemotherapy. Often, this damage to the central nervous system pain pathways results in neuropathic pain described as burning, paroxysmal, Author: Karen Y. Wonders, Brittany Stout.

Later it was found that both, pain and itch are Pain and itch: nervous mechanisms book by slowly conducting nerve fibers. The intensity hypothesis is, however, at variance with many other observations: there are many forms of pain that do not turn to itch when the stimuli get weaker.

Intense itch can be more troublesome than many forms of pain without swelling to pain. While differences between acute pain and acute itch are striking, chronic itch and chronic pain share many similar mechanisms, including peripheral sensitization (increased responses of primary sensory neurons to itch and pain mediators), central sensitization (hyperactivity of spinal projection neurons and excitatory interneurons), loss of Pain and itch: nervous mechanisms book control in the spinal Cited by: Summary.

Several of the important studies in this symposium on pain and itch suffer because they were made on laboratory animals, which obviously cannot supply the crucial data—namely whether they feel itch or pain.

Neurogenic itch refers to itch resulting from central nervous system activation without necessary activation of sensory nerve fibers and is thought to occur in a variety of visceral disease states such as renal disease and kidney failure.

Although neurogenic itch is associated with visceral diseases, the mechanisms underlying the pruritus are often complex and can also involve pruriceptive by: Itch, which is defined as a sensation resulting in an urge to scratch, is normally a benign unpleasant physiologic response.

However, when itch becomes severe or chronic (>6 weeks) or occurs in the context of an underlying medical condition, it has a significant effect on the patient's well-being (similar to that of chronic pain). 1 The chronicity of pruritus can affect sleep, mood, Cited by: Advances in itch research have elucidated differences between itch and pain but have also blurred the distinction between them.
