Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of polyneuropathy in a 14-year-old boy, a chronic gasoline sniffer, is reported. Clinical and electromyographic examination showed a symmetrical motor involvement, mainly distally and in the lower limbs. A sural nerve biopsy showed only slight changes, both of axonal and demyelinating type. The role of gasoline toxic substances in the etiology of this rare polyneuropathy is discussed.
