Neuropathic pain (NP) is a pain arising as a direct consequence of a lesion or disease affecting the somatosensory system. A variety of factors associated with the development of persistent NP have been suggested. The goal of the present article is to provide an overview of current knowledge about prognostic factors for persistent NP. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health model is used as a framework to categorize these predictors. Most reported predictors in the literature were found in the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health-category of personal factors, especially age and psychological factors, functions and structure, including sensory signs and symptoms. Predictors in the category of environmental factors, activities and participation were less frequently described.
