Abstract

The pathogenetic, clinical, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of alcoholic polyneuropathies, the most common nervous system complication in alcoholism, are considered. Two possible pathogenetic mechanisms of polyneuropathy: the direct toxic effect of ethanol and its metabolites and malnutrition with deficiency of B-group vitamins, including thiamine, are discussed. The use of B-group vitamins and α-lipoic acid preparations
is recommended as pathogenetic therapy. The adjuvant analgesics - anticonvulsants and antidepressants are used to treat neuropathic pain.
