By definition, the time to reach nadir in Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is within four weeks. This is in contrast to the chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP), which progress for at least two months. However, CIDP can take a relapsing and remitting form and could mimic treatment related fluctuations of GBS (GBS-TRFs) especially during the early phase of disease. We report a patient with CIDP who initially presented with a rapidly progressive limb weakness mimicking GBS, but finally showed good recovery after long term corticosteroid therapy.
Key words: Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneurpathy, Guillain-Barre syndrome
