The sensory examination aims to establish the sensory modality involved, the intensity of involvement, and the anatomical distribution of the sensory change. In combination, these patterns isolate the likely neurological location of disease and later suggest etiology.

In lesions of the peripheral nervous system the sensory loss tends to be intense, with fixed, clearly defined zones. With central nervous system sensory deficits the boundaries are vague and the deficit is more mild as compared with peripheral processes. There may be considerable variation in both the distribution of and intensity of this type of sensory deficit.
