About these proceedings

Introduction

While motor neuropathies and neuronopathies and mixed sensory-motor neuropathies have been met with adequate interest by clinical and basic researchers and physicians, pure sensory neuropathies and neuro­ nopathies have received comparably less attention, despite of the consider­ able morbidity they may cause in the individual patient. This prompted us to organize an International Symposium on Sensory Neuropathies which was held in Vienna, September 22-24,1990, as satellite to the International Neuromuscular Congress held one week earlier in Munich, Germany. We were fortunate to have a faculty of experienced authorities in the field as participants. This volume is the proceedings of the symposium. Due to factors which were beyond our control, publication of this volume was significantly delayed. Despite the enormous progress of biomedicine in recent years, most prominently in molecular biology, we feel that the contributions of this volume still represent a valuable reference for clinical, physiological, biochemical and pathomorphological studies on the sensory nervous system for which similarly comprehensive data are difficult to locate.
