3). Hereditary Sensory neuropathy

1). Syringomyelia

2). Tabes dorsalis

3). Transverse myelitis

4). Prolapsed intervertebral disc

5). Cervical spondylosis

Pathology of Neuropathy

1). Pathogenesis in neuropathy

a. Axonal degeneration (In nerve conduction study, amplitude affected > velocity).

b. Demyelination. (In nerve conduction study, velocity affected > amplitude.)

2). Axonal Degeneration (Retrograde) (Dying back Neuropathy)

a. Retrograde Axonal Degeneration is one type of classical response of nerve to an insult and consists of degeneration of axon from distal to proximal (Referred to as 'Dying back neuropathy')
