Besides distal symmetrical sensory polyneuropathy (DSSP), middle-aged diabetic patients may present with focal or multifocal neuropathies, including proximal neuropathy of the lower limbs, the pathophysiological features of which are uncertain. We studied 10 non-insulin-dependent diabetic patients, 45 to 72 years of age, who developed a painful proximal neuropathy of the lower limbs for which other causes of neuropathy were carefully excluded. The proximal neuropathy was asymmetrical in all… CONTINUE READING
