Relation between symptoms and pathophysiology in inflammatory neuropathies: Controversies and hypotheses.

Autor(es): Franssen Hessel

Resumo: This review attempts to explain the symptoms experienced by patients with inflammatory neuropathies by pathophysiological events. The emphasis is not on the primary events that may cause a particular illness but on downstream events taking place in peripheral nerves or muscles. Symptoms that will be discussed include sensory predominance, motor predominance, activity-induced weakness, heat paresis, and cold paresis. Each symptom is associated with, but not limited to, particular neuropathies.
