    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...
