Biopsia de nervio
Toggle: English / Spanish
La biopsia de nervio es la remoción de una pequeña porción de un nervio para ser examinada. A través de una pequeña incisión se extrae una muestra de nervio y se examina bajo el microscopio. La biopsia de nervio puede realizarse para identificar la degeneración nerviosa y las condiciones inflamatorias nerviosas (neuropatías), así como para confirmar diagnósticos específicos.
