Subject: Health | Topics:

Compensatory hyperhidrosis is a type of neuropathy. It is encountered in patients with myelopathy, thoracic disease, cerebrovascular disease, nerve trauma or after surgeries. The exact mechanism of the phenomenon is poorly understood. It is attributed to the perception in the hypothalamus that the body temperature is too high. The sweating is induced to reduce body heat.
