  • Erythromelalgia

    Most patients studied have associated small-fiber neuropathy. The disease course is variable. A reliable and safe treatment has not been determined.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The severe pain and allodynia indicated small-fiber neuropathy but muscle weakness suggested an involvement of large myelinated nerve fibers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Erythromelalgia is a rare disorder that simulates a small fiber neuropathy and patients often have painful erythematous extremities during episodes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Gain of function mutations cause pain disorders such as primary erythromelalgia, paroxysmal extreme pain disorder, and small fiber neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] fiber neuropathy.[link.springer.com] PURPOSE: Fabry disease is an X-linked genetic disorder caused by the mutations of α-galactosidase A (GLA, MIM 300644) gene presenting with various clinical symptoms including small-fiber[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Multimodal evaluation of small fiber neuropathy and resonance magnetic neurography are under development.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This raises the question, "How common an entity is idiopathic pure small-fiber sensory neuropathy?"[jamanetwork.com] Predominantly motor neuropathy Sensory-motor neuropathy Diabetic neuropathy Small fiber neuropathy Alcoholic neuropathy Multifocal motor neuropathy Optic neuropathy Peroneal[stemcellthailand.org]

  • Diabetic Polyneuropathy

    Thermal threshold was normal in 57% and altered in 43% of patients (small fiber neuropathy). In those with normal TTs, no case with an altered NC was found (p 0.001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Small fiber neuropathy represents a significant component of diabetic sensorimotor polyneuropathy (DSPN) which has to date been ignored in most recommendations for[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Decreased intra-epidermal nerve fiber density is indicative of small-fiber neuropathy.[link.springer.com]
