Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
CIDP can be progressive or relapsing. The precise onset of symptoms is often difficult to identify. Cranial nerves, respiratory function, and autonomic functions are relatively spared.
CIDP can occur at any age, although it is more common in older males.
For more information, see OMIM.
