Yes but . . . .: Since pan is a vasculitis, it like the other rheumatological illnesses of this type can cause an associated neuropathy. It would be important to rule out other potential causes like medications, vitamin deficiencies, alcohol, infections, hereditary, diabetes, neurological conditions or vascular compromise. Others too. The onset, time course, distribution, and anatomy can help define it. Emg done?
