There are several causes for peripheral neuropathy, including painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) and post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). DPN is a common complication of diabetes mellitus and can have debilitating consequences with significant impact on quality of life. PHN is the most common complication that follows resolution of acute herpes zoster infection and healing of zoster rash and consists and is characterised by chronic pain. Our aim was to identify and compare health-related quality of life (HRQoL) dimensions in patients with PDN and PHN.
