  • Quantitative sudomotor axon reflex test and microneurography are used in the diagnosis of AIGA.
  • Quantitative sudomotor axon reflex testing (QSART) measures sweating response at local body sites to evaluate the small nerve fibers that innervate sweat glands.
  • An axon reflex may be responsible for uveitis formation -- stimulation of pain receptors in the cornea results in release inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins, histamine, and acetylcholine.
