Abstract

A sporadic case of 'acropathic ulcero-mutilante' is reported. The results of clinical and EMG investigations stress the close pathogenetic relationship which exists between 'sensory' and 'sensory-motor' hereditary neuropathies, allowing the authors to classify their case among the so-called 'transitional forms'. Of particular importance may have been the changes occurring in motor conduction velocity of the ulnar nerve even after minimal increases in temperature, as in patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. The diagnostic value of this test is then discussed.
