Peripheral neuropathies result from a variety of inherited and acquired pathologies. They display an assortment of clinical signs and symptoms and present with a broad range of severity. Electrodiagnosis can play a key role in the evaluation of a suspected peripheral neuropathy. A peripheral nerve disorder is first suspected on the basis of history and physical examination findings. Electrodiagnosis is then used to confirm the diagnosis and to characterize the peripheral neuropathy, providing information about its distribution, pathophysiologic process (demyelinating vs axonal), and chronicity.
