Neu*ral"gi*a (?), n. [NL., from gr. nerve + pain. See nerve.] Med.

A disease, the chief symptom of which is a very acute pain, exacerbating or intermitting, which follows the course of a nervous branch, extends to its ramifications, and seems therefore to be seated in the nerve. It seems to be independent of any structural lesion.
