Peripheral neuropathy is common and has many different etiologies. This is the last of three articles that review the less-common causes of peripheral neuropathy. Part III reviews the genetically coded causes of peripheral neuropathy, including those related to amyloidosis, neoplasm, paraproteinemias, as well as autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, and x-linked causes. The extrinsic causes of neuropathy and the reactive or induced causes of neuropathy are covered in separate articles, Part I and Part II, respectively. The brief series reviews unusual causes of neuropathy and describes common presentations and the constellation of clinical findings. The goal is to help the clinician increase the diagnostic yield when sorting out the unusual causes of peripheral neuropathy.
