Childhood Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an autoimmune disorder characterised by demyelination of nerve roots and nerves. CIDP is less common in children but it has a favourable outcome as compared to adults. The course may be monophasic and progressive or characterised by recurrent relapses. The characteristic clinical presentation is with both proximal and distal muscle weakness with areflexia. Steroids, immunoglobulin and plasmapheresis are the mainstay of treatment. Of all these modalities, steroids are more likely to induce long lasting remission.
