Abstract

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an uncommon cause of progressive weakness in childhood. The diagnosis is easy when the clinical history and findings are supported by unequivocal electrophysiologic and laboratory evidence of demyelination, but it can be challenging if the criteria for demyelination are not met. We report a case of atypical childhood CIDP to highlight the diagnostic difficulties and the importance of recognizing this treatable condition.
