Abstract

Diabetic radiculoplexus neuropathies (DRPN) are neuropathies clinically and pathologically distinct from the neuropathy typically associated with diabetes (DPN). DRPN are usually subacute in onset, painful, and often demonstrate a monophasic course with incomplete recovery. Pathologically, these neuropathies are due to ischemic injury from altered immunity and often have features suggestive or diagnostic of microvasculitis. Unlike DPN, immune therapy may be helpful in treatment of these conditions given their pathological substrate and therefore are important to identify early and distinguish from other neuropathies that occur in patient with diabetes.
