Current perception threshold (CPT) has been proposed as a quantitative method for assessment of peripheral sensory nerve function. The aim of this review of selected reports is to provide an overview of CPT measurement for the assessment of the neurological component of hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). The CPT values at 2000 Hz significantly increased for patients with HAVS. This result supports the previous histological findings that demyelination is found predominantly in the peripheral nerves in the hands of men exposed to hand-arm vibration. Diagnostic sensitivity and specificity were high for severe cases of Stockholm sensorineural (SSN) stage 3 compared with non-exposed controls, but not high for mild cases of SSN stage 1 or 2 and for carpal tunnel syndrome associated with HAVS. However, there are only a few studies on the diagnostic validity of the CPT test for the neurological components of HAVS. Further research is needed and should include diagnostic validity and standardizing of measurement conditions such as skin temperature.
