Mononeuropathy, Mononeuropathy Multiplex, and Other Neuropathies
Monoeuropathies, mononeuropathy multiplex, and other neuropathies are all caused by damage to the peripheral nervous system. Monoeuropathies are characterized by neuropathic pain and motor disturbances in the distribution of one affected nerve. Mononeuropathy multiplex affect nerve trunks that cause dysesthesias and paresthesias and are usually caused by ischemia to the vasa nervorum.
