Length vs Non-Length Dependent Small Fiber Neuropathy

Neuropathy Digest Volume I. Selections include: Length vs non-length dependent small fiber neuropathy, sweat gland nerve fiber density (SGNFD), and autoimmune autonomic neuropathy.

Gemignani et al reported on their findings in patients with non-length dependent small fiber neuropathy (SFN). Of 44 patients diagnosed with SFN, 11 had non-length dependent neuropathy. Of these, 2 had Sjögren’s syndrome, 1 each had impaired glucose tolerance, rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis C virus, or Crohn’s disease, and 5 were idiopathic. Patients with distal small fiber neuropathy tended to be older, and approximately 50% had impaired glucose metabolism.
