A case-control study was performed to expand the knowledge on risk factors related to peripheral epidemic neuropathy. The universe of study was made up of all the patients diagnosed by the provincial commission from 1993 to 1998 in the health area of "13 de Marzo" polyclinics whereas the controls with similar epidemiological variables were randomly selected. It was proved that there was no association with age, and that females were the most affected. The increased physical activity and smoking had statistical significance. Alcoholism was found to be important associated with smoking. It was concluded that the internal physical activity, no ingestion of vitamin supplements and malnutrition are important risk factors in the occurrence of the disease
