Sensory Neuronopathies

9/19/2016

Dr. Justin Willer interviews Dr. Kelly Gwathmey about her article, Sensory Neuronopathies. The sensory neuronopathies (or ganglionopathies) are a small subcategory of neuropathies characterized by primary degeneration of the dorsal root ganglia and trigeminal ganglion sensory neurons, resulting in a distinctive clinical presentation. Patients typically have subacute onset of asymmetric, non–length-dependent sensory impairment and early ataxia. The etiologies of acquired sensory neuronopathies are rather limited. Early identification is imperative, as they may herald an underlying malignancy or an autoimmune condition such as Sjögren syndrome. This podcast reviews the Muscle and Nerve article on this subject. Muscle Nerve 53: 8–19, 2016
