Pathophysiology of immune-mediated demyelinating neuropathies—Part II: Neurology


  • This study was supported by a grant from the Prinses Beatrix Spierfonds


In the second part of this review we deal with the clinical aspects of immune-mediated demyelinating neuropathies. We describe the relationship between pathophysiology and symptoms and discuss the pathophysiology of specific disease entities, including Guillain–Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, multifocal motor neuropathy, anti–myelin-associated glycoprotein neuropathy, and POEMS syndrome.
