Motor nerve conduction velocity testing was used to detect subclinical peripheral neuropathy in hypertension. The right ulnar and left median nerves of thirty patients with essential hypertension, but without diabetes or uremia, were examined. Neurological examination in all patients was normal. In 18 patients with diastolic pressures of less than 120, the MNCV was normal while in the remaining 12 with diastolic pressures of 120 or higher, abnormal MNCV rates, indicating subclinical peripheral neuropathy, were found.
