An infant with chronic, relapsing polyneuropathy responsive to steroids



An infant with chronic, relapsing polyneuropathy responsive to steroids



Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology 24(4): 504-524



A seven-week-old infant presented with an acute flaccid paraparesis. Her subsequent course was punctuated by numerous exacerbations, in association with minor intercurrent illness and remissions produced by corticosteroid treatment. Postmortem examination revealed a chronic inflammatory polyradiculopathy. She represents the youngest patient yet described with a chronic, relapsing, steroid-responsive polyneuropathy.
