Treatment-induced neuropathy is an distinct, acute form of neuropathic pain which often occur shortly after initiation of intensive glycemic control and is characterized by excruciating neuropathic pain. It is a rare form of diabetic neuropathy and easy to be misdiagnosed. Clinical characteristics were analyzed based on two cases of treatment-induced neuropathy in diabetes accepted by the Third Xiangya Hospital of Central South University. It is proposed that strict glycemic control may lead to the occurrence of the disease. At Present, the pathogenesis is still unclear. Besides, the morbidity is much higher than we expected. It is important to improve the doctors awareness of this disease and avoid the the disease through carful glycemic control.
