Abstract

 

We describe a 34-year-old woman with an acute length-dependent smallfiber polyneuropathy (SFP) caused by Coxsackie B3 and B5 and Influenza A, H3N2 viruses. She presented with an acute onset of burning pain and distal sensory deficit in both legs shortly after the acute viral encephalopathy. This is the first report of the serologically confirmed length dependent SFP caused by Coxsackie and Influenza viruses.
