FPN Educational Brochures
Peripheral neuropathy is the manifestation of many different conditions that can damage the peripheral nerves and is considered a neurological disorder rather than one distinct disease. Peripheral neuropathy may be either inherited or acquired.
In order to achieve its mission, FPN initiated the creation of the Peripheral Neuropathy Research Registry (PNRR) which will facilitate both the basic and clinical research studies needed for an improved understanding of the causes and development of PN. Learn more about the Registry and how to enroll.
