Peripheral neuropathies secondary to neurotoxicants are frequently considered but can be difficult to diagnose. Accurate diagnosis is important to avoid unnecessary testing, prevent further exposure, and initiate treatment when available. This article reviews key features of some of the more common or representative toxic neuropathies, including those caused by occupational and environmental exposure, medications, and chemotherapeutic agents.
