Abstract

Peripheral neuropathies are a common problem with a myriad of potential etiologies that may be encountered acutely. Early diagnosis of certain neuropathies can lead to life-saving therapy. This article reviews the literature on diagnostic approaches to peripheral neuropathies and suggests a structured framework of pattern recognition and systematic evaluation to aid the hospitalist in efficient evaluation of urgent cases.
