Generalized neuropathy in Taiwan: an etiologic survey.

Abstract:

:From July 1988 to June 1989, the etiology was registered of 520 patients with generalized neuropathy in 5 neurological centers in Taiwan. The neuropathy was diabetic in 256 cases (49.23%), alcoholic in 45 (8.65%), inflammatory in 34 (6.53%; including 21 with acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, 12 with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, and 1 with chronic relapsing polyneuropathy), 12 with associated malignancy (2.31%), 9 with dysproteinemia (1.73%), uremic in 22 (4.23%), hereditary motor and sensory in 22 (4.23%), toxic in 14 (2.69%), ischemic in 12 (2.31%), hypothyroidism in 10 (1.92%), nutritional deficiency and malabsorption in 6 (1.15%), chronic liver disease in 4 (0.77%), other diseases in 11 (2.12%) and unclassified in 63 (12.12%). This survey provided a crude etiological picture of generalized neuropathy on this island.

In order to identify the geographical pattern of CVD mortality, age- and sex-specific as well as age-adjusted mortality rates (ICD-8,9 rubrics 430-438) were calculated for the period 1975-1986 for each province in the country.
