pol·y·ra·dic·u·lo·neu·rop·a·thy

(pol'ē-ra-dik'yū-lō-nū-rop'ă-thē),
1. Literally, a disease process that affects roots and peripheral nerves.
2. A nontraumatic, usually sporadic, generalized disorder of nerve roots and peripheral nerves, which may affect motor fibers or sensory fibers, but usually both, although often not to the same degree; classified as axon degenerating (axonal) or demyelinating. This disorder has many causes, primarily immune mediated, and includes Guillain-Barré syndrome and chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy.
