Hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathies (HSAN) are rare genetically determined neuropathies. They often manifest as painless injuries in children and there is a potential for misdiagnosis with other sensory neuropathies especially leprosy. We report two siblings who clinically, electrophysiologically and pathologically have HSAN. We also summarise the current classification and recent genetic advances.
