Most generalized peripheral polyneuropathies are accompanied by clinical or subclinical autonomic dysfunction. There is a group of peripheral neuropathies in which the small or unmyelinated fibers are selectively targeted. In these neuropathies, autonomic dysfunction is the most prominent manifestation. The features associated with an autonomic neuropathy include impairment of cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, urogenital, thermoregulatory, sudomotor, and pupillomotor autonomic function.
