Abstract

Adult polyglucosan body disease (APBD) is a rare condition characterized by neuropathy, dementia, upper motor neuron dysfunction and neurogenic bladder. For diagnosis, the presence of polyglucosan bodies (PB), or PAS (+) glucose polymers, must be demonstrated. In this description of a woman with APBD and multiple entrapment neuropathy, we discuss a possible role for morphological changes induced by PB in increasing susceptibility to pressure palsies.
