Acute Severe Sensory Ganglionopathy in Systemic Lupus Erythematous


Sensory ganglionopathies (SG) are a rare heterogenous subgroup of neuropathies characterized by primary involvement of sensory neurons in dorsal root ganglions (DRGs) resulting in a distinctive clinical presentation. The onset is usually subacute or chronic with asymmetric, non–length-dependent sensory impairment and ataxia (when large-fiber neurons affected) and/or positive sensory symptoms such as burning pain, hyperesthesia and allodynia (when small-medium size neurons affected) with relatively well-preserved muscle strength.
