Prolonged duration of the distal compound muscle action potential (DCMAP) ("DCMAP dispersion") is useful in the electrodiagnosis of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) with good specificity in distinguishing CIDP from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and diabetic polyneuropathy, but its role in the electrodiagnosis of acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP) is unclear. This study addresses this issue by determining the optimal cutoff for DCMAP duration… CONTINUE READING
