  • Autoimmune disorders of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) comprise a heterogeneous group of diseases that result from an aberrant immune response.

Although their etiology remains elusive, there is increasing knowledge of the pathophysiological mechanisms causing tissue dysfunction and structural damage. The… CONTINUE READING
