Abstract

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an immune-mediated disorder characterized by the symmetrical weakness in both proximal and distal muscles for at least 2 months, hyporeflexia or areflexia, nerve conduction abnormalities, and high CSF protein level. Diabetes mellitus, monoclonal gammopathy, hepatitis C infection, HIV infection, SLE, Sjogren syndrome and lymphoma have been associated with CIDP. The incidence of CIDP in diabetes is not known exactly, but occur more common among diabetic than nondiabetic patients. There is sometimes a difficulty in distinguishing between diabetic polyneuropathy and CIDP, but differential diagnosis is important because CIDP is treatable with immune-modulating therapy. We report a case of CIDP in 22-year-old girl with type 1 DM who presented with generalized motor weakness and walking disturbance which were treated with iv immunoglobulin
