Inflammatory neuropathies: Guillan-Barré syndrome (GBS) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

When acute and chronic forms of inflammatory neuropathy are accurately diagnosed, supportive and immune modulating therapy can be instituted. This often leads to complete recovery of function. In addition to these treatment measures, however, it is critical to focus time on patient and family communication, and education. From the earliest stages, the patient should understand the risk of progression, the prognosis for recovery, and that the disease process is limited to the peripheral nervous system.
