Distal symmetric polyneuropathy: A definition for clinical research
The objective of this report was to develop a case definition of distal symmetric polyneuropathy to standardize and facilitate clinical research and epidemiologic studies. A formalized consensusExpand

Practice Parameter: Evaluation of distal symmetric polyneuropathy: Role of laboratory and genetic testing (an evidence-based review)
Background: Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is the most common variety of neuropathy. Since the evaluation of this disorder is not standardized, the available literature was reviewed to provideExpand

Multifocal demyelinating neuropathy with persistent conduction block
We describe five patients with a chronic asymmetric sensorimotor neuropathy most pronounced in the upper extremities with focal involvement of individual nerves. Diagnosis was established byExpand

Practice Parameter: Evaluation of distal symmetric polyneuropathy: Role of autonomic testing, nerve biopsy, and skin biopsy (an evidence-based review)
Background: Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is the most common variety of neuropathy. Since the evaluation of this disorder is not standardized, the available literature was reviewed to provideExpand

Distal accentuation of conduction slowing in polyneuropathy associated with antibodies to myelin-associated glycoprotein and sulphated glucuronyl paragloboside.
In four patients with a chronic, demyelinating polyneuropathy associated with monoclonal IgM antibodies to myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) and sulphated glucuronyl paragloboside (SGPG), we haveExpand

A syndrome of asymmetric limb weakness with motor conduction block
We describe 3 patients with asymmetric limb weakness, fasciculations (2 patients), relatively preserved reflexes, normal cranial nerves, and few or no sensory abnormalities. The symptoms had beenExpand

A computer simulation of conduction block: Effects produced by actual block versus interphase cancellation
A reduction in compound muscle action potential (CMAP) amplitude and area following proximal versus distal stimulation is the accepted clinical hallmark of conduction block; however, quantitativeExpand

Wasting of the hand associated with a cervical rib or band 1
Nine patients are described with unilateral wasting of the hand muscles associated with elongated C7 transverse processes or with rudimentary cervical ribs. In three patients there was selectiveExpand

Experimental allergic neuritis induced by sensitization with galactocerebroside.
Thirteen of 31 rabbits immunized repeatedly with bovine brain galactocerebroside developed experimental allergic neuritis, manifested by flaccid paresis and hypesthesia of four limbs, 2 to 11 monthsExpand
