Small fiber neuropathies
Small fiber neuropathy is a polyneuropathy affecting the small unmyelinated and thinly myelinated sensory and autonomic nerve fibers. Symptoms typically include numbness, paresthesias, and neuropathic pain, and sometimes can include symptoms of autonomic dysfunction. Autonomic symptoms and subclinical autonomic dysfunction are common with small fiber neuropathy. Frequently, no cause for small fiber neuropathy is identified, and it is idiopathic.
