Sirs: Demyelination of the peripheral and central nervous systems are thought to mediate the clinical features seen in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and multiple sclerosis (MS), respectively. However, there have been occasional reports of clinical features suggestive of central demyelination in CIDP and of peripheral neuropathy in MS [4–6]. I report a patient with a chronic mixed peripheral neuropathy, who went on to develop clinical evidence of widespread brain and… CONTINUE READING
