Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article reviews the acquired causes of polyneuropathy other than diabetic and acute-onset neuropathies. The author gives a general method to simplify the diagnosis of chronic polyneuropathy. The acquired polyneuropathies are discussed under four main headings: metabolic disorders, toxic or deficiency states, infections, and immune-mediated. Recent advances in therapy are emphasized, and some illustrative case histories are provided.
