Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Idiopathic Small Fiber Neuropathy effects a wide range of patients but is often very disabling for middle-aged patients who are otherwise productive. In this typical case, the essential components of the workup are reviewed, treatment options are considered and potential contributing factors are discussed. The causes of this painful disorder remain unknown and further research is needed.
