Polyneuropathy is a functional and/or structural disturbance of peripheral nerves causing motor, sensory, or autonomic symptoms or signs. Polyneuropathies that do not have an identifiable cause are considered idiopathic. Idiopathic polyneuropathies can be divided into 3 clinical categories: sensorimotor, pure sensory, and sensory neuronopathies. Neuropathic pain is a common presenting symptom and is often the focus of medical management.
