An infection is less likely to elicit chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) than Guillain-Barré syndrome. We here report a case of acute-onset CIDP following hepatitis A virus infection and briefly comment on the potential mechanisms regarding the induction and chronicity of autoimmunity after a viral infection.
Key words: Polyradiculoneuropathy, Chronic inflammatory demyelinating; Guillain-Barre syndrome; Hepatitis A virus
