Peripheral neuropathy (PN) refers to a group of diseases caused by the dysfunction and structural changes of peripheral motor, sensory and autonomic nerves. Scales for screening and assessing PN are continuously being used in clinical practice. This article summarizes PN score scales for four kinds of PN, including chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, diabetic PN and neuropathic pain, aiming to improve medical staff's understanding and application ability of the PN assessment scale.

Key words: assessment scale, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP), Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), neuropathic pain (NP)
