A 21-year-old female born of nonconsanguineous marriage presented with gradually progressive quadriplegia for 3 years. Weakness was distal more than proximal, with wasting. She also had moderate pain in extremities. She had significant weight loss. Clinically, she had lower motor neuron flaccid quadriplegia with absent deep tendon jerks. Sensations of touch and pain were diminished in bilateral feet till ankle joints. Peripheral nerves were not thickened. Nerve conduction study was suggestive of pure axonal sensorimotor polyneuropathy. All routine hematological and biochemical parameters, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, antinuclear antibodies, and antinuclear cytoplasmic antibodies were negative. Cerebrospinal fluid showed no cells, normal sugar, and raised proteins. Biopsy of sural nerve was suggestive of vasculitic neuropathy. This was a case of nonsystemic vasculitic neuropathy that responded to steroids.
