We treated two patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) with high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (HIG). The patients received 400 mg/kg of immunoglobulin a day for five days. One patient, who had failed to respond to prednisolone before, was treated with HIG, 18 months after the onset. His motor symptoms resolved immediately(More)
We report a 66-year-old woman clinically diagnosed as having a corticobasal degeneration (CBD), who showed electrophysiologically cortical reflex myoclonus. She developed a clumsiness and action myoclonus on the right extremities, and aphasia. The extrapyramidal signs such as dystonia and rigidity were also noted on the right side. Sequential MR images(More)
Following flu-like illness a 75 year old man developed pure sensory neuropathy that reached a peak at 3 weeks. Cerebrospinal fluid protein was elevated with no increase in cell count The sensory deficits started to improve 4 months later, and were completely resolved 12 months later. Compound sensory nerve action potential, which had been absent initially,(More)
A 9 year old boy had chronic progressive motor-sensory neuropathy that started in early infancy. He had enlarged nerves and pes cavus deformity. Motor conduction studies showed very dispersed, polyphasic compound muscle action potentials with conduction velocities around 2 m/s. A sural nerve biopsy showed severe loss of myelinated fibres. Two months of(More)
We describe a 9-year-old boy with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), whose distal dominant, slowly progressive motor sensory involvement developed since infancy. Thickened peripheral nerves were visible in his neck and palpable in the extremities. The hand muscles were atrophic and both feet showed pes cavus deformity. He was unable(More)
