Abstract

A 40 years old man presented with progressive weakness and distal paraesthesia of limbs with difficulty in walking for last seven years. As the patient was not investigated thoroughly, a diagnostic dilemma was persisted. This patient went abroad & investigated thoroughly and yet not reached to a confirm diagnosis. Subsequently this patient reported to us and diagnosed it to be a case of Idiopathic Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) responded to oral steroid therapy. After follow-up, this patient showed marked improvement. So diagnostic dilemma that persisted with such a patient that showed improvement with treatment and a challenge to a treatable condition had encouraged us to report the case.
