  • Thiamine Deficiency

    Anorexia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain. Later features Paraesthesia, peripheral neuropathy, depressed tendon reflexes, loss of vibration sense.[] Nerve conduction studies were consistent with axonal, length-dependent polyneuropathy.[] Other systemic symptoms include weakness, malaise, joint pain and swelling, edema, depression, and neuropathy.[]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    In later stages, spasticity, extensor plantar responses, greater loss of position and vibratory sensation in the lower extremities, and ataxia emerge.[] BACKGROUND AND AIM: Treatment of neuropathic pain and chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) in patients with malignancy is often unsuccessful.[] peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[]

Five months later a severe dementia followed.[] On admission, the patient exhibited bifacial, extremity weakness, ataxia, impaired sensation, and areflexia. Electrophysiology and nerve biopsy suggested demyelination.[]
