Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a rare neurological disorder that affects peripheral nerves. Symptoms range from weakness to paralysis, mild loss of feeling to total numbness, and no nerve pain to significant nerve pain.
Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) disorder is also 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.
