Serum antibodies to GM1 and GM3-gangliosides in systemic lupus erythematosus with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy



Serum antibodies to GM1 and GM3-gangliosides in systemic lupus erythematosus with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy



Acta Neurologica Scandinavica 83(6): 399-402



Acute symmetric demyelinating polyneuropathy of the Guillain-Barré type is known in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Chronic idiopathic demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) has been reported rarely with SLE. A case is reported of CIDP accompanying SLE with autoantibodies against GM1- and GM3-gangliosides. There was no historical evidence to suggest SLE, and CIDP was the first manifestation of SLE. The 38-year-old patient had elevated CSF-protein, slow nerve conduction velocities, sural nerve biopsy revealed mixed axon loss with demyelination and CIDP white matter lesions were observed in magnetic resonance imaging, the GM1- and GM3-autoantibodies may play a role in the pathogenesis of CIDP in SLE.
