Answer

There can be combinations of any of the above subtypes, and virtually any combination of nerve injury. There are likely mild cases that cause temporary symptoms, improve spontaneously, and never get definitively diagnosed.

Other unusual clinical variants with restricted patterns of weakness are observed only in rare cases.
