Notalgia paresthetica is a clinic condition which is characterized by burning pain, neurological symptoms such as hypoesthesia and paresthesia with hyperpigmented pruritic skin lesion in the dorsal region. A 68-year-old woman admitted to our clinic with a burning back pain, because of her pruritic hyperpigmented skin lesion in the scapular region we diagnosed notalgia paresthetica and applied kinesio taping and dry needling combination. We aimed to present and discuss this case with a short review of the literature that we apply a different treatment approach.
