Can someone out there PLEASE shed some light on a diagnosis I just

Left sural nerve, peripheral nerve with axillion degeneration. Local
segmented demylenation and myelin swelling on teased fiber preparation
consistent with Tomacula.

Comment: Pressure sensitive neuropathy, also seen in demylenated states.

Question is what is Tomacula?? I can't get a definition of this term from
anyone or any search on the Internet. Thanks.
