Abstract

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is relatively rare in children. Moreover, atypical presentation remains a diagnostic challenge for physician. Early recognition and proper immunomodulatory therapy is important for favorable outcomes with prevention of progressive course. We report a case with atypical CIDP. The aim was to focus on the diagnostic difficulties and the importance of recognizing this treatable condition.
