Can non-invasive tests predict histological small fiber neuropathy in postural tachycardia syndrome?

Takeaway

  • Histological small fiber neuropathy can be detected by non-invasive quantitative sensory testing in people with postural tachycardia syndrome.

Why this matters

    Postural tachycardia syndrome often coexists with small fiber neuropathy, the clinical relevance of which remains unknown. These initial data suggest that quantitative sensory testing could be used for the noninvasive diagnosis of small fiber neuropathy in postural tachycardia syndrome.
