Are there any other peripheral neuropathies

Are there any other peripheral neuropathies?

Yes—there are many. More examples include hereditary sensory neuropathy type I (a rare autosomal dominant disorder), painful polyneuropathy associated with Guillan-Barre syndrome (an acute myelinopathy), or chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (a chronic myelinopathy), as well as neuropathies related to porphyria and autoimmune disorders. Sensorimotor neuropathies may present as part of a paraneoplastic syndrome with various carcinomas, with small cell carcinoma being most common. “Idiopathic neuropathy” should also be mentioned.
