We read with interest the comments of Lauria et al about our article describing the clinical features of chronic cryptogenic sensory polyneuropathy (CSPN).1 In our experience and from the accounts of colleagues, cryptogenic sensory-predominant polyneuropathy is a common clinical problem found in neuropathy centers, typically presenting in the sixth to seventh decade of the patient's life.2 These unclassified neuropathies have received limited attention in the literature, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss them further.
