CIDP and IgM MGUS CNS involvement

Thanks Julie for the links

After reading Norb’s reply, I googled “IgM MGUS CNS” and located an additional paper at [url][/url] titled “Frequency of central lesions in polyneuropathy associated with IgM monoclonal gammopathy: an MRI, neurophysiological and immunochemical study” dated 1992. That’s a long time ago, but it confirms CNS involvement in some cases of IgM MGUS.

It also references three papers (first three) from the same era on the topic of CNS involvement in CIDP.

I personally have not had an MRI.

I’ll add this subject to my list of questions to ask at the upcoming GBS/CIDP conference in Toronto on April 18th.
