All motor roots may be involved in Guillain-Barré syndrome, an acute polyneuropathy. T h e brachial plexus may be damaged by trauma, tumour or irradia­ tion, and its lower cord may be compressed by a cervical rib, by fibrous bands in the thoracic inlet, or by carcinoma of the apex of the lung (Pancoast tumour), with weakness of muscles supplied by the eighth cervical and first thoracic segments. The lumbosacral plexus may be compressed by pelvic tumours. Individual peripheral nerves may be affected by vascular lesions (as in polyarteritis nodosa), an immune reaction, a chronic inflammation such as leprosy, or be compressed at some point in their course.

A pin drawn lightly upwards over the trunk may demonstrate a band of hyperaesthesia. If paraesthesiae are unilateral, sensory examination is concentrated on comparison of the two sides of the body. If abnormal sensations are confined to part of one limb, then the comparison of sensation proceeds from the affected area outwards to delineate it clearly in terms of the peripheral nerves or spinal segments affected. This procedure seems obvious and logical but is often neglected. A formal sensory examination, performed systematically without due regard for the clinical history, may lead to the significant disturbance being submerged beneath a contour map of irrelevant artefacts pro­ duced by fatigue of both examiner and patient.
