    Several studies have suggested a pathogenetic role of paraproteinaemias in PNS damage. Over the last few years, the presence of symptomatic or subclinical PNS lesions in CNS diseases like multiple sclerosis has been described. On the other hand, CNS demyelinating lesions and cervical atrophy...

    SummaryThe common association between monoclonal gammopathy and peripheral neuropathy was studied in seven patients with demyelinating polyneuropathy and IgM paraproteinaemia. Plasma samples from these individuals were thoroughly tested for antiperipheral nerve myelin (PNM) antibodies and then...
