Patients with diabetes mellitus and an underlying mixed axonal and demyelinating polyneuropathy are particularly prone to compression neuropathies with consequent axonal degeneration and a poor prognosis for recovery. This hazard should be taken into account whenever a prolonged surgical procedure is contemplated. An illustrative case is presented.
