  4. 4.  CAUSES OF MONONEUROPATHY:1- Trauma: wrong injection into a nerve, callus compression.2- Infective: leprosy, herpes zoster.3- Vascular: polyarteritis nodosa.4- Metabolic: diabetes mellilus.
  5. 5. CAUSES OF POLYNEUROPATHYI-Heridofamilial:1- Hypertrophic interstitial polyneuropathy.2- Peroneal muscle atrophy.3- Refsums disease.
