Objectives
Narrative objectives1 Small fiber neuropathy (SFN) is a distrubance of peripheral nerves expressing burning pain and painful dysesthesias in the distal extremities without apparent nerve conduction abnormality, frequently associated with diabetes mellitus, collagen diseases, vasculitis, sarcoidosis and other systemic diseases. It has been reported that SFN is a disturbance of c-fibers or Adelta-fibers conducting mainly noxious signals and distributing in the dermis and epidermis of the skin. However pathomechanism of SFN has not been fully documented, although clinical needs to establish adequate therapeutic strategy are required.
This study is designed to investigate immunohistochemical change of peripheral nerves in biopsied skin in relation with clinically evaluated SFN in patients with diabetes mellitus, collagen diseases, vasculitis and sarcoidosis. Inflammatory cytokines in the same tissues, as well as in the venous blood, are investigated in order to correlate the change of peripheral nerves with the systemic and cutaneous immunological and inflammatory background.

Key inclusion criteria Patients suffered from diabetes mellitus, collagen diseases, vasculitis and sarcoidosis accompanied with subjective symptoms such as chronic pain, dysaesthesia, and/or disturbed temperature sensitivity are to be included. Patients are neurophysiologically and electrophysiologically diagnosed and classified as possessing SFN, or not having SFN but with disturbance of peripheral nerves with greater diameter.
Key exclusion criteria Patients diagnosed as not having SFN or other type of disturbance of peripheral nerves with greater diameter, or patients with disagreement are to be excluded from the study. .
