Abstract

Peripheral neuropathy, mononeuropathy and polyneuropathy, are not common in pregnancy. When complaints occur, however, even if minor, they can be bothersome to the pregnant woman. Peripheral nerve function may threaten the mother and fetus in various ways during gestation. Quick recognition and treatment efforts should therefore be the clinician's goal. This article reviews peripheral neuropathy in pregnancy.
