Peripheral neuropathy. Coloured transmission elctron micrograph (TEM) of a section through nerve tissue, showing peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage. A dying nerve axon is at centre. Peripheral neuropathy is a condition is which the peripheral nerves, which connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body, become diseased, inflamed or damaged. Most nerve cell axons have an insulating sheath known as the myelin sheath. Peripheral neuropathy arises from damage to the myelin sheath or the axon itself. The condition may cause the slowing down or complete blockage of electrical nerve signals.
