3,576 Possible Causes for Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    Participation included measuring vitamin B12 levels and assessing peripheral neuropathy using Neuropathy Total Symptom Score-6 (NTSS-6) questionnaire.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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] BACKGROUND: Vitamin B12 deficiency leads to abnormal myelination or demyelination, resulting in sub-acute combined degeneration, peripheral neuropathy, and psychiatric problems[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Alcoholism

    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] Peripheral Neuropathies Peripheral neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the peripheral nervous system.[disabilitysecrets.com]

  • Osteoporosis

    This is especially important for people who have peripheral neuropathy (see fact sheet 555 ) in their feet or legs.[aidsinfonet.org]

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    After excluding four patients with peripheral neuropathy, a definite delay in the distal motor latency of the tibial nerve was documented in 11 subjects (25%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] BACKGROUND: Decompressive tarsal tunnel surgery may improve dysfunctional plantar foot sensation in, patients with tarsal tunnel syndrome and peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] THE occurrence of peripheral neuropathies caused by compression incident to anatomic alteration has received considerable attention in recent years.[nejm.org]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Case report: We presented apical healing of the upper central incisor, retrofilled with TSC, in a diabetic patient (type 2 DM) with peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Also, there were significant changes in clinical findings for diabetic peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The Michigan Neuropathy Screening Instrument was used to identify peripheral neuropathy. Ankle brachial index was used to identify peripheral arterial disease (PAD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Median Neuropathy

    […] concomitant peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] INTRODUCTION: Focal peripheral neuropathy of the median nerve is mainly caused by a traumatic event or pressure, but it may also be produced by systemic illnesses.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Carpal tunnel syndrome is a localized peripheral neuropathy that affects the hands.[peripheralneuropathycenter.uchicago.edu]

  • Diabetic Autonomic Neuropathy

    Abstract To investigate the relationship between diabetic autonomic and peripheral neuropathies, we carried out power spectral analysis (PSA) of heart rate variations and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , duration of diabetes and presence of peripheral neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] OBJECTIVE: To determine if hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for the development of diabetic sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy (DSPN) and diabetic autonomic neuropathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuropathy

    […] management of generic peripheral neuropathy.[doi.org] Nerve damage caused by injury can also be classified as peripheral neuropathy.[neuravite.com] Medications can reduce the pain of peripheral neuropathy.[mayoclinic.org]

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

    Neurologic complications are rare but may include encephalitis, seizures, Guillain-Barré syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, viral meningitis, myelitis, cranial nerve palsies[merck.com] A diagnosis of acute symmetrical sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy (Guillain-Barré syndrome) was made. The results of CSF cultures were negative.[dx.doi.org] Of note, some of the medications used in the patient's conditioning regimen are potentially nerotoxic: fludarabine can cause mild peripheral neuropathy, encephalopathy, seizures[dx.doi.org]

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    […] management of generic peripheral neuropathy.[doi.org] Nerve damage caused by injury can also be classified as peripheral neuropathy.[neuravite.com] Peripheral neuropathy is a collective term that refers to damage to the peripheral nerves. It may occur due to myriad reasons.[symptoma.com]
