A patient had sensory radicular neuropathy. The patient demonstrated features characteristic of this entity: (1) recurrent trophic ulcerations of the hands and feet, (2) onset in early adulthood, (3) distal, dissociated loss of pain and temperature sensation far out of proportion to the loss of other sensory perceptions, and (4) complete sparing of motor function.
