Reports of leptospirosis-associated, immune-mediated manifestations ranging from mononeuritis and Guillain-Barrelike syndromes to postinfectious autoimmune epilepsy (3,15) raise the question of whether Leptospira infections might precipitate or aggravate autoimmunity.
Late neuroborreliosis is much rarer than early disease and presents with clinical pictures regarding central nervous system involvement such as progressive encephalitis, myelitis and encephalomyelitis or peripheral nervous system involvement such as mononeuritis or polyneuritis (3).
[15] Motor and sensory neurotoxic effects of cnidarian venoms have been reported in several cases of mononeuritis multiplex produced by different jellyfish [16] Few reports of Guillain-Barre syndrome and dysphonia following jellyfish stings have also been reported.
(13) In this case, cyclophosphamide was added because of gastrointestinal involvement and progressive and disabling confluent mononeuritis multiplex.
Peripheral nerve involvement can occur in PAN, which usually presents as subacute or chronic mononeuritis multiplex or confluent neuropathy.
As per literature, kidneys are more involved in MPA affecting almost 100% of patients while 80% of GPA and 40% of EGPA patients are known to manifest renal symptoms.4,17 Peripheral neuropathy has been reported to manifest predominantly in EGPA patients observed in 76% of patients compared to GPA and MPA (51% and 37% respectively).17 Consistent with this finding, we found that our EGPA patients were more likely to have neurological manifestations (mononeuritis multiplex and sensor motor-polyneuropathy) (44.4%) compared to GPA and MPA patients (8.7% and 0% respectively).
Our study is limited by a lack of cryoglobulinemia testing (due to technical reasons), which is an independent factor of sensorimotor neuropathy and mononeuritis multiplex.

Meningitis, sensory and motor radiculoneuropathies like mononeuritis multiplex, and meningoencephalitis [2, 4, 5] may present in LNB; strokes, intracranial hemorrhages, and sinus thrombosis are rare but possible complications in LNB [1].
