Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the peripheral nerves and results in a tingling, painful, or burning sensation in the extremities. It most commonly occurs in the legs. Other symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can include weakness and numbness. Sensory symptoms may be negative or positive, diffuse or focal. Negative sensory symptoms include feelings of numbness or deadness, which patients may describe as being akin to wearing gloves or socks. Loss of balance, especially with the eyes closed, and painless injuries due to loss of sensation are common. Sensory Motor Neuropathy And Bone Deformities. The long nerves of the hands and legs are affected more than the short nerves. The person feels severe burning pain in the hands and feet. The distribution of pain is usually described as glove and stocking distribution. There is also loss of sensations in the feet, loss of reflexes and muscle The receptors of the feet are considerably farther removed from their cell bodies in the dorsal root ganglia than are the receptors of the hands. The metabolic demands on these neurons is substantial which accounts for their being the first affected and for the early appearance of sensory loss in the feet in a "stocking" distribution. The longest nerves are usually affected, with sensory loss in a glove and stocking distribution. The sensory loss is often accompanied by loss of power and autonomic involvement. There is loss of pain and light touch, with decreased reflexes and muscle wasting in affected parts. Sensory loss due to a lesion of the brachial plexus will appear in the distribution of two or more peripheral nerves if the lesion is infraclavicular and in the distribution of multiple cervical dermatomes if the lesion is supraclavicular. All sensory modalities may be involved.
Abnormal sensations, such as ‘pins and needles’, tingling, prickling, reduced or even loss of sensation. It implies abnormality anywhere along the sensory pathway from peripheral nerve to sensory cortex – the epitome of ‘neuropathic pain’ Reproduced with permission from Beran R.

What is the nature of sensory involvement? Large fiber neuropathies may involve sensory and/or motor nerves, and most patients will present with a “glove and stocking” distribution of sensory loss . stocking and glove distribution. temperature in a stocking distribution, mildly reduced foot areflexia, mild sensory loss including the perineum, and neu-.
sensory loss, numbness, and pain or burning sensations in distal limbs in a “stocking and glove” distribution. Over time, the numbness may extend proximally, and
Consequently, the pattern of sensory loss is entirely unique in leprosy, lesions with varying degrees of sensory loss and a 'stocking-glove' type of anesthesia in FIG 5 Epidermal Innervation in Armadillos: Skin sections immunostained with An example of foot damage due to sensory loss. insidious onset sensory neuropathy typically shows a stocking-and-glove distribution in the distal extremities. form of sensory disturbance2 such as numbness, paresthesias, and changes Sensory examination revealed the same stocking glove distribution as described distorted perceptions due to sensory loss as has been suggested in phantom There was sensory loss in a distal (stocking-glove) distribution in the arms and legs. Hyperesthesia was present at the proximal border of sensory loss in the legs

DSPN affects primarily the sensory nerves, and the symptoms and signs vary distal-to-proximal stocking-glove sensory loss or the presence of typical signs in peripheral nerve. Polyneuropathy—distal greater than proximal (i.e., stocking- glove pattern) Distribution of sensory loss for L4, L5, and S1 radiculopathies.
Jul 17, 2006 This results in the classic "stocking-glove" distribution of symptoms and In more severe cases, sensory loss may be found over the anterior

Sep 25, 2017 The neuropathy begins with fatigue and loss of sensation, pain, and In rare cases, patients experience loss of power in the legs, in which sensory loss is temperature sensation in a stocking-glove distribution, distal muscle or stockings, peripheral neuropathy is often described as having a "glove and One of the more common causes of cranial neuropathy is loss of blood flow from When a specific nerve is involved, the symptoms are limited to the distribution of Tangier disease, hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathy, and hereditary Jan 17, 2020 Neuropathies are characterized by a progressive loss of nerve fiber function. and shows a stocking-and-glove distribution in the distal extremities. the arms, a pattern often referred to as "stocking and glove" sensory loss. Patients with lacunar stroke may rarely present with sensory loss in median or ulnar nerve distribution. Although patients with spinal canal stenosis present Polyneuropathies usually present with a symmetric stocking-glove pattern of In mononeuropathy, sensation should be decreased only in that nerve's distribution. Radicular lesions cause motor weakness, sensory loss, paresthesias, and
