Peripheral neuropathies are a vast group of diseases with heterogeneous aetiologies, including genetic and acquired causes. Several haematological disorders may cause an impairment of the peripheral nervous system, with diverse mechanisms and variable clinical, electrophysiological and pathological manifestations. In this practical review we considered the main phenotypes of peripheral nervous diseases and examined the haematological disorders which may associate with each of them.
The area of intersection of neurological and haematological fields is of particular complexity and raises several problems in clinical practice. The personal crosstalk between neurologists and haematologists remains a fundamental tool for a proper diagnostic process which may lead to successful treatments in most cases.
