Alcoholic Neuropathy with Superimposed Focal Entrapment Neuropathies
MetadataShow full item record
We reported here a case of alcoholic polyneuropathy with superimposed focal entrapment neuropathies. A 55-year-old male patient was admitted to the electrophysiology unit with the diagnosis of left ulnar neuropathy. He had a previous history of chronic alcoholism. Nerve conduction studies revealed bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, bilateral ulnar neuropathy at the elbow, left peroneal neuropathy at the fibular head, prolonged distal motor latencies and moderately reduced motor conduction velocities in multiple motor nerves, slowed conduction velocities in multiple sensory nerves and multiple prolonged F-waves. Gene analysis did not reveal deletion on chromosome 17p11.2-12. We wanted to share our findings with other clinicians to get their opinion regarding possible diagnosis of the case.
