Diagnosis in neuromuscular disease. Sensory disorders of the peripheral nervous system

D. S. Younger, R. Geocadin

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Sensory disorders of the peripheral nervous system are clinically, electrophysiologically, and pathologically heterogeneous. The history, physical examination, and appropriate laboratory studies (including blood tests, genetic evaluation, electrodiagnostic studies, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, and sural nerve biopsy) can lead to a definitive diagnosis in a majority of patients.
