Diagnostic value of sural nerve matrix metalloproteinase-9 in diabetic patients with CIDP.

Abstract

Patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) may develop chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), which may be difficult to distinguish from diabetic neuropathy (DNP). Here the authors show that immunoreactivity for matrix metalloproteinase-9 on sural nerve biopsies may help to identify CIDP-DM. In a pilot study on 10 CIDP-DM patients with IV… (More)
