Abstract

The clinical and neurophysiological features of 23 patients affected by essential cryoglobulinemia (EC) have been studied. It was possible to perform sural nerve biopsy in 3 cases. Six patients were found to be affected by a peripheral neuropathy, according to the WHO criteria, while in 8 other patients clinical and neurophysiological signs of a milder peripheral nervous system (PNS) involvement were evident. The incidence of PNS involvement seems to be high (60.9%). Neurophysiological and histological studies were indicative of a mainly axonal damage.
