NIH Rare Diseases:46 Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (cidp) is a neurological disorder that causes progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. symptoms often include tingling or numbness (first in the toes and fingers); weakness of the arms and legs; loss of deep tendon reflexes; fatigue; and abnormal sensations. cidp is thought to be caused by an abnormal immune response in which the immune system mistakenly attacks and damages the myelin sheath (the covering that protects nerve fibers) of the peripheral nerves. cidp is closely related to guillain-barre syndrome (gbs) and is considered the "chronic counterpart" of gbs. treatment may include corticosteroids, immunosuppressant drugs, plasma exchange, physiotherapy, and/or intravenous immunoglobulin (ivig) therapy. last updated: 11/23/2015
MalaCards based summary: Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, also known as chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy, is related to myasthenia gravis and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. An important gene associated with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy is HP (Haptoglobin). The drug immunoglobulins, intravenous has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include t cells, bone and skin.
NINDS:47 Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. The disorder, which is sometimes called chronic relapsing polyneuropathy, is caused by damage to the myelin sheath (the fatty covering that wraps around and protects nerve fibers) of the peripheral nerves. Although it can occur at any age and in both genders, CIDP is more common in young adults, and in men more so than women. It often presents with symptoms that include tingling or numbness (beginning in the toes and fingers), weakness of the arms and legs, loss of deep tendon reflexes (areflexia), fatigue, and abnormal sensations. CIDP is closely related to Guillain-Barre syndrome and it is considered the chronic counterpart of that acute disease.
