    Erythromelalgia is an unusual condition characterized by attacks of burning pain in the hands and feet with local congestion and increased skin temperature. We report a case of erythromelalgia, with transient hypertension and elevated urinary catecholamines successfully treated by hypnotherapy. Such an association has not to our knowledge been previously reported in English language publications.
