According to recent EAN guidelines on central neurostimulation in chronic pain conditions there is only week evidence for primary motor cortex rTMS in neuropathic pain[2], while other guidelines on rTMS state a defi nite analgesic effect of high frequency rTMS of the primary motor cortex contra-lateral to pain site in neuropathic pain[3]
