Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density (ENFD) testing is the only test that can provide a definitive diagnosis for small fiber neuropathy. A simple 3mm punch biopsy procedure will provide the specimen we need to determine the status of your patient’s neuropathy. In addition, Ipsum Diagnostics can also perform testing which includes stains detecting amyloid and vasculitis, all evaluated by a board-certified dermatopathologist.
Using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), genetic material from pathogenic organisms and antibiotic resistant (ABR) genes are detected quickly and accurately. Performing this highly sensitive test provides targeted information to improve treatment while lowering side effects, medication risks and costs. Reports contain actionable data with treatment considerations based on actual results.
