Peripheral neuropathy and connective tissue disease. Watch for this twosome when hunting for a diagnosis.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Coexistent peripheral neuropathy and connective tissue disease is fairly common, possibly because immune-mediated factors are often present in both disorders.
