Is acute ataxic neuropathy a distinct entity? Clinical-electrophysiological and morphological study
Ten patients of acute severe sensory ataxic neuropathy seen over 6 years are reported. Presence of severe sensory deficits, absence of ophthalmoplegia or significant motor weakness, distinct electrophysiological abnormalities, frequently persisting and disabling ataxia distinguish this rare disorder from the more benign Miller Fisher syndrome and more commonly observed G. B. Syndrome with residual ataxia.
