  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    peripheral neuropathy, and spinal degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In later stages, spasticity, extensor plantar responses, greater loss of position and vibratory sensation in the lower extremities, and ataxia emerge.[merckmanuals.com] Vitamin B12 deficiency, which may present without anemia and as a peripheral neuropathy, is often misdiagnosed as diabetic neuropathy, although the clinical findings are usually[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome (ataxia, confusion, ophthalmoplegia), amnesic problems, peripheral neuropathy and dementia.[patient.info] A consecutive sample of 62 chronic alcoholics was studied, 18 females and 44 males, aged between 28 and 69 years to assess the incidence and distribution of peripheral neuropathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The results show that alcohol-related neuropathy, especially when subclinical, seems to be frequent and mostly characterized by axonal degeneration of peripheral nerve fibres[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Paraneoplastic Syndrome

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare condition in pregnancy which is characterised by symmetrical progressive ascending polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , and loss of deep tendon reflexes with relative sparing of strength in the extremities and trunk.[icd10data.com] In some cases, peripheral neuropathy may develop. GBS improves spontaneously, but the recovery period may take from several weeks to more than a year.[peripheralneuropathycenter.uchicago.edu]

  • Pernicious Anemia

  • Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

    Shortly after HSCT the patient developed progressive polyneuropathy of the lower legs and hypoesthesia. Five months later a severe dementia followed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] On admission, the patient exhibited bifacial, extremity weakness, ataxia, impaired sensation, and areflexia. Electrophysiology and nerve biopsy suggested demyelination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] What is peripheral neuropathy?[phoenixneurology.com]

  • Thiamine Deficiency

    Nerve conduction studies were consistent with axonal, length-dependent polyneuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] degeneration and peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 2 to 3 months apathy and weakness become extreme, calf muscle tenderness develops with loss of recent memory, confusion, ataxia, and sometimes persistent vomiting ([wardelab.com]
