Abstract

Vasculitic neuropathy (VN) may affect the peripheral nervous system alone (non-systemic vasculitic neuropathy (NSVN)) or be part of a systemic vasculitis. Studies indicate that NSVN is ascommon as other inflammatory neuropathies but is underdiagnosed, probably becausethe clinical phenotype is very heterogenous and vary from sub-acute painful mononeuritis multiplex to progressive, symmetric polyneuropathy. Since the irreversible nerve damage can be reduced with immunosuppressants, early recognition of VN is important. More studies are needed to validate treatment and outcome measures.
