AIMS Diagnosis of early distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is challenging. Nerve conduction studies (NCS) are often normal. Skin biopsy for intraepidermal nerve fiber density (IENFD) has better sensitivity, but is invasive. Sudoscan is a novel technology that measures electrochemical skin conductance (ESC; microSiemens, μS), which is thought to be proportionate to the number of functional sweat glands. This study evaluated Sudoscan's diagnostic utility for DSP. METHODS 55 patients with… CONTINUE READING
