    Entrapment or compression type of neuropathy. Here, let’s say that remember way back when we did median nerve, and we did, and we did in great detail. And with the median nerve, down by the wrist will be the most common location, and what you’re seeing here is exactly that. And here, you have your carpal tunnel, and let’s say that you have a patient that works with the hands a lot, maybe gaming, joystick, whatever. And so therefore, they may then cause inflammation of this region and therefore cause compression of or entrapment of your nerves. Ulnar nerve at the elbow, radial nerve in the spiral groove, peroneal nerve at the fibular head, and lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh, all extremely important. And remember, when we talked about the femoral nerve in great detail, we talked about something called meralgia paresthetica. These are entrapment issues, and very, very -- well, let me say very, very common but could be a common presentation based on the occupation and habits of your patients. Under peripheral neuropathy. Acute, generally, here you go. There is a list of AIDP, porphyrias, diphtheria, polio, toxins, your acute type of issues. Subacute: deficiency states, maybe toxins, uremia, diabetes, sarcoidosis, paraneoplastic, just keep things in perspective. Your chronic with CIDP, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, diabetes, maybe once again, renal failure. And then finally, we have relapsing, more or less kind of behaves like your multiple sclerosis but this would be chronic. Where are we? In the periphery, right? So peripheral neuropathy. And we know that multiple sclerosis only affects the central, all right? It's simple. The things that you want to be very clear about organization. Our topic for quite some time now has been peripheral neuropathy, and really, what we’re going to do as we...
