Neurol Clin. 2013 May;31(2):477-89. doi: 10.1016/j.ncl.2013.02.002.


Neuropathies due to nutritional problems can affect certain patient populations and have a varied presentation because of multiple coexistent nutritional deficiencies. Clinicians should consider nutritional neuropathies in patients presenting with neuropathies. Clinicians should be alert for signs and symptoms of neuropathy in patients who have had bariatric surgery.
