Familial Amyloid Polyneuropathy (FAP) is a relatively rare hereditary amyloidosis, which is an autosomal dominant genetic disease. It is a progressively worsening neurological disease with sensory, motor and autonomic neuropathy as the main manifestations. Patients often have obvious autonomic nervous function, heart, and eye involvement. It is rarer that the disease is manifested by pure peripheral nerve damage. This article reports a case of FAP with pure peripheral nerve damage to the family, in order to improve the neurologist's understanding of the disease.
