Abstract

Introduction: Aging brings with it an increase in the prevalence of pain. For effective pain treatment, it is important to determine pain prevalence, its nature, and the factors affecting it. However, epidemiologic information on neuropathic pain in the elderly is inadequate. In our cross-sectional multicenter study, we aimed to determining the prevalence of neuropathic pain in elderly patients and the relationship of neuropathic pain with socio-demographic and clinical factors.
