RESTREPO, José Félix et al. Primary Lymphocytic Vasculitis of late onset, Limited to the Peripheral Nerve. Rev.Colomb.Reumatol. [online]. 2009, vol.16, n.2, pp. 138-145. ISSN 0121-8123.
We present the finding of strictly peripheral nerve vascultis in six cases. The finding are secondary to a vasculitis that produce a stocking-glove sensitive-motor polyneuropathy, with an limphomonocytic infiltrate, absence of fibrinoid necrosis, good prognosis, low recurrences and an excellent response to treatment. We propose that this condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis of polyneuropathies and multiplex mononeuritis. A literature review is made.
