Abstract 

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a condition affecting the peripheral nervous system; however, it has been associated with central nervous system (CNS) involvement. The natural history and response to treatment of these CNS lesions are unknown. We report the case of a patient with CIDP which met research criteria for definite CIDP and associated symptomatic CNS lesions. She had resolution of her CNS-based clinical and radiographic findings with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy. IVIG is a reasonable treatment option when symptomatic, CIDP-associated CNS lesions are present.
