Cases of chronic inflammatory demyelinating poliradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) have been reported in hematopoietic stem cells transplantation complicated by graft versus host disease (GVHD). A systematic review of the CIDP‐like neuropathies associated with GVHD was conducted until January 2015, analyzing the clinical presentation and the response to different therapeutic regimens. Nineteen patients have been reported in literature including the present one. Fourteen subjects fulfilled the criteria for CIDP, whereas two cases presented with an asymmetric motor onset and one showed motor involvement only associated with anti‐ganglioside antibodies. In addition, two subjects already affected by CIDP developed a significant relapse after GVHD. This study reviews the literature data and reports one additional case of CIDP and GVHD, suggesting that the two clinical entities might share a similar immunological background.
