Examination showed signs of polyneuropathy and sensory ataxia.[] Pyridoxine dosage was reduced to 500 mg/day, resulting in the disappearance of sensory symptoms and ataxia, and the normalisation of sensory nerve potentials.[] Chronic administration of 1-6 g oral pyridoxine per day for 12-40 months can cause severe and progressive sensory neuropathy characterized by ataxia (loss of control of bodily[]
