The differential diagnosis includes an array of acquired and hereditary disorders. The history often offers the richest source of information, which can then direct the physical examination and electrodiagnostic testing. Further studies may include nerve biopsy and, most recently, blood testing for genetic disorders. Some neuropathies may respond to treatment; indeed, the response to treatment may be diagnostic.
