Migrant sensory neuropathy: report of 5 cases and review of the literature.

Author information

  • 1Neurologische Abteilung, Kaiser Franz Josef Spital, Vienna, Austria.


There are only a few case descriptions of migrant sensory neuropathy. We report the clinical, laboratory, and electrophysiological findings observed in 5 patients whose presentation conformed with Wartenberg's description of a chronic, disseminated migrant sensory mononeuritis. In one patient, intermittent cranial motor nerve involvement occurred as well. The sural nerve biopsy in this patient showed changes suggestive of focal ischemic nerve damage and electron microscopy confirmed a vasculopathy.
