Abstract

Background:

Tremor is an underrecognized feature in certain neuropathy subtypes.

Phenomenology shown:

We show a patient with a disabling neuropathic tremor and mild cerebellar syndrome associated with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and anti-neurofascin-155 (NF155) antibodies.

Educational value:

Anti-NF155 testing should be considered in patients with CIDP and disabling tremor because of therapeutic implications.

KEYWORDS:

Neuropathic tremor; chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy; neurofascin‐155
