A number of HNPP studies from the Last 15 months

Just checked my email, and lo and behold I have an HNPP Pubmed notification.

Here’s the highlights from the last 15 months, (link first, followed short summary.)

Interesting that Ultrasound is used to detect abnormalities, unfortunately there’s little or no text to see in this abstract.
