Femoral neuropathy presents, often acutely, with thigh weakness, numbness, and variable pain. Hip flexion weakness is observed in more proximal lesions. Most femoral neuropathies are caused by iatrogenic compression of the nerve either in the pelvis or beneath the inguinal ligament. Nerve conduction studies and needle EMG are useful for diagnostic and prognostic purposes.

Pupil abnormalities encompass afferent and efferent types, including unequal size, light near dissociation, irregular shape, abnormal position, and episodic abnormalities. They can be transient or constant, and are often asymptomatic or noticed by an observer.

Metabolic encephalopathy involves global cerebral dysfunction, with presentations ranging from mild executive dysfunction to deep coma. Delirium is often the initial phase of impairment of consciousness, with impairment of attention, fluctuations in alertness, clouding of consciousness, disturbances in the wake-sleep cycle, and sometimes agitation and restlessness. Selective attention and the ability to process information are the cognitive domains primarily affected.

Some neurologic disorders are more common in the elderly, and their prevalence is increasing with higher life expectancies. Although changes in the brain that are associated with aging cannot be prevented, the onset of the impairment of function can be delayed, and neuropsychological performance can be improved by certain measures, including mental and physical exercises. Neurorehabilitation is important in the management of neurologic disorders of the elderly, with an emphasis on gait training.

Vitamin E plays a role in the control of brain prostaglandin synthesis, regulation of nucleic acid synthesis, and gene expression. Neurologic and muscle dysfunction due to vitamin E deficiency may result from lack of antioxidant protection in susceptible tissues. Vitamin E has some therapeutic effect in a number of neurologic disorders where its deficiency has been demonstrated as well as a neuroprotective effect in some neurodegenerative disorders.
