    Background: Demyelinating polyneuropathy is a debilitating, poorly understood disease that can exist in acute (Guillain- Barré syndrome) or chronic forms. Interleukin-10 (IL-10), although traditionally considered an anti-inflammatory cytokine, has also been implicated in promoting abnormal...

    This article focuses on chronic inflammatory demyelinative polyneuropathy (CIDP), which is an acquired peripheral neuropathy of unknown origin, presumably immunological. The term CIDP was introduced in 1982. Its underlying pathology involves a multifocal demyelination that affects spinal roots,...
