Of this group, we concentrated on 156 who had a supragenicular facial lesion, a greater than 90% facial nerve degeneration on electroneuromyography, and good cochlear reserve.
This study aimed: i) to evaluate the correlation between clinical tests and electroneuromyography for the diagnosis of leprosy neuropathy; and ii) to identify the prevalence of leprosy neuropathy diagnosed by electroneuromyography and the most compromised peripheral nerves in leprosy.
Patients were evaluated with clinical history, dermatological and neurological examination, and electroneuromyography test.
Results: Of the 4,230 cases reviewed, 1,946 (46%) showed normal Electroneuromyography findings despite pathological Electroneuromyography findings in 2,284(54%) cases.
Conclusion: Electroneuromyography is an uneasy, painful and stressfull procedure for children, and, therefore, it should be recommended only in cases where the result may be beneficial in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of a patient.

Another electroneuromyography clinic reported 2/1000 cases during 17 years of working period (5).
As the weakness in the left arm could not be explained by MRI or the other investigations, neurologic consultation was sought, and an electroneuromyography (ENMG) test was performed.
Electroneuromyography (ENMG) was performed on the right median, ulnar, and radial nerves for motor and sensory conduction.
Focal neuropathies are the most frequently encountered disorders in the electroneuromyography (ENMG) practice.
