A new diagnostic test has been developed to localize the lesions affecting the somatosensory system. The neurogenic inflammatory response of the skin provides an objective method to decide whether a lesion is located peripherally or centrally to the spinal ganglia. This method has the advantage of obtaining direct information on the functional state of sensory fibres.
