Introduction: A single and simple question, namely “What percentage of normal (PoNL) do you feel regarding your disease?” is feasible and valid in myasthenia gravis. In this study, we aimed to determine the validity of this question in patients with nondiabetic polyneuropathy. Methods: Clinical, electrophysiological, and functional and disability assessments were performed in 151 patients with nondiabetic polyneuropathy. One hundred forty patient answers were recorded for the PoNL question, and these were included in the current study. Results: The PoNL correlated moderately with functional and disability scales. Discussion: “What PoNL do you feel?” is a simple, quick, and valid question, which correlates moderately with functional and disability scales in nondiabetic polyneuropathy, and it may be incorporated in polyneuropathy assessment.
- functional scales
- percentage of normal
