Electrodiagnosis plays an important role in the early detection and characterization of inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathies, because timely treatment reduces morbidity and disability. The challenge consists of defining electrodiagnostic criteria that are highly specific for primary demyelination but sufficiently sensitive to be useful in clinical practice. We compared 10 published sets of criteria in 53 patients with demyelinating Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and 28 with… CONTINUE READING
