Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: HSNP    
Hereditary Sensory/Autonomic Neuropathy Panel by Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Diagnosis of inherited hereditary sensory (HSN) and autonomic neuropathy (HSAN) associated with known causal genes


Second-tier testing for patients in whom previous targeted gene mutation analyses for specific inherited hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy-related genes were negative


Identifying mutations within genes known to be associated with inherited hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy, allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members
