[Diagnostic strategy for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy. Recommendations of the French working group].

Résumé

The diagnosis of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) requires a careful clinical and neurophysiological evaluation, often completed by CSF analysis. In numerous cases, this diagnosis is straightforward and leads to rapid initiation of an immunomodulatory treatment. However, some patients are not diagnosed because of atypical clinical and/or neurophysiological features, and do not benefit from a potentially effective treatment. In this context, a working group was composed with the task of establishing recommendations on diagnostic strategies for CIDP in the main clinical situations where this diagnosis may be suspected. We have summarized these recommendations and tried to present them in the form of a decision-making algorithm.
