To determine whether anti-Plexin D1 antibody (Plexin D1-immunoglobulin G [IgG]), which is associated with limb and trunk neuropathic pain (NP) and binds to pain-conducting small unmyelinated dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, exists in patients with idiopathic painful trigeminal neuropathy (IPTN) and whether Plexin D1-IgG binds to trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons.
