A case of chronic sensory ataxic neuropathy secondary to primary polycythemia is reported. This association, has not been recorded before. Electrophysiological investigations revealed features consistent with severe sensory and mild motor axonopathy. Sural nerve biopsy showed severe fibre loss and Schwann cell proliferation. Ultra structurally accumulation of neurofilaments was noted in both unmyelinated and myelinated fibres. Low persistent ischaemia of nerves due to hyperviscosity is the probablepathogenic mechanism for the axonal stasis and nerve damage.
