Abstract

This brief review was written with the intention of familiarizing the reader with autonomic peripheral neuropathies. We have discussed what we think are the main presenting symptoms of these conditions, briefly outlining some specific autonomic neuropathies. We then provide a general guideline to evaluation and diagnosis by using both widely available, as well as more sophisticated, techniques. Finally, we have addressed management. Whenever possible, specific treatment of underlying disorders leads to the best outcome. However, for many autonomic neuropathies, no cure is available, although symptomatic management can effectively improve patients' quality of life.
