  • Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy Type 5

  • Peripheral Sensory Neuropathy

    Clinically, there was progressive decrease or loss of tendon reflexes, decreased vibratory sense, and mild decrease in light touch and pin sensation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Distal sensory latencies became prolonged or dropped out completely, but there was little change in motor nerve conduction velocities or motor unit action potentials.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitamin E Deficiency

    Examination usually reveals dysarthria, hand incoordination, gait unsteadiness, arreflexia, and vibratory/proprioceptive sense loss.[ataxia.uchicago.edu] Diffuse muscle weakness most prominent distally may be present in 42% of patients. Retinopathy (9%) or dystonia/bradykinesia (13%) are found in minority of patients.[ataxia.uchicago.edu]

  • Neuropathy

    Loss of distal pain and temperature sensation is more prominent than loss of vibratory and position sense.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Serum Neuropathy

    Pain, tingling, loss of vibratory sense, loss of temperature sense, loss of proprioception, and distal weakness are common symptoms. • Follow the American Academy of Neurology[todaysgeriatricmedicine.com]
