Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an acquired immune-mediated polyneuropathy. Corticosteroids,intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and plasmapheresis have been reported to be effective treatment. Rarely, CIDP can occurin the patients with HIV infection. The clinical features and electrophysiological findings of CIDP are known to be similarin patients with and without HIV infection. We report a 30-year-old male with HIV infection associated CIDP who improvedafter the administration of intravenous immunoglobulin and long term oral prednisone.
