axon loss polyneuropathy

(redirected from axonal polyneuropathy)

ax·on loss pol·y·neu·rop·a·thy

a type of polyneuropathy in which axon degeneration is the sole or predominant feature; it has many etiologies, particularly toxic and metabolic; nerve conduction studies show that it affects the amplitude of the responses but does not cause conduction slowing or block.
