Persistent scar pain associated with healed surgical incisions after a trauma is a common and potentially debilitating type of fascial pain. At present, there is no universally effective treatment for persistent surgical or post-trauma scar pain. Herein we describe the successful objective diagnosis of debilitating scar pain by Ultrasound (US) imaging. The sonopalpation of the fasciae and subcutaneous tissues seems to be relevant to diagnose the real cause of the pain and why not to monitor the treatment.
