Unilateral neural insult may occasionally lead to chronic symptoms (e.g., pain, edema) not only at the site of the insult but also at the corresponding "mirror image" contralateral site. Mirror-symptoms are poorly understood and often go unrecognized, or are attributed to altered patterns of use. A case/discussion involving mirror symptoms is presented.
