Precise classification of distal sensory polyneuropathies (SN) according to fiber type involvement is desirable for clinical and research purposes. The sural sensory response has served as an electrophysiologic gold standard for the assessment of large-fiber sensory dysfunction. However, patients labeled as having small-fiber sensory neuropathies on the basis of a normal sural response frequently have clinical evidence of large-fiber dysfunction. The surface-recorded medial plantar potential… CONTINUE READING
