Vasculitic neuropathy associated with beta-haemolytic streptococcal infection: a case report.

Author information

  • 1Divisione di Neurologia, Ospedale di Sanremo, Italy.


Vasculitic neuropathy is rarely associated with a definable collagen vascular disease. Peripheral neuropathy may be the sole manifestation of vasculitis, and the aetiology is frequently unknown. We here report the case of a woman presenting mononeuritis multiplex, whose sural nerve biopsy was diagnostic of necrotizing vasculitis. There was serological evidence of preceding beta-haemolytic streptococcal infection. We assume that vasculitic neuropathy can be included among the possible sequelae of streptococcal infections.
