  • Prognosis The outcome for peripheral neuropathy depends heavily on the cause. Peripheral neuropathy ranges from a reversible problem to a potentially fatal complication. In the best cases, a damaged nerve regenerates.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • The prognosis of neuropathy can differ depending on the etiology.[opedge.com]
  • Types of peripheral neuropathy There are more than 100 types of peripheral neuropathy, each with its own set of symptoms and prognosis. To help doctors classify them, they are often broken down into the following categories: Motor neuropathy.[columbianeurology.org]


  • Since observed neuropathy is mainly on the myelin sheath, the etiology is considered to be the chronic overload of afferent impulses from muscle spindles in the spastic muscle.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • All 3 profiles were represented in each etiology evaluated, although there were differences in their distribution.[clinicalpainadvisor.com]
  • […] by these etiologies overlap considerably.[journals.lww.com]
  • Mechanisms NT may have different mechanisms of action, depending on the etiology. For instance, when the sensory input is impaired or altered, the resulting misinformation may cause tremor despite the brain and spinal cord functioning correctly.[news-medical.net]


  • For epidemiological purposes, cases were classified as optic forms (CIR 242.39) or peripheral forms (CIR 219.25).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
