Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an acquired inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology affecting the peripheral nervous system. The disease can be chronically progressive or follow a pattern of relapses and remissions. Motor involvement is usually greater than sensory and causes symmetrical, proximal limb weakness. CIDP is not a common disease in our field. Ignorance in the anesthetic management of these patients creates uncertainty. There are not any guidelines for the specific anaesthetic management of these patients. The possibility of a complications after an anesthetic action has motivated us to share our experience and conclusions after a brief review. The patient’s permission was obtained to publish this case report.
