Another case report has shown the effectiveness of Rituximab in treating a patient of Morvans syndrome and coexistent chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculopathy
Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is a multifactorial and lethal inflammatory demyelinating neuronal disorder with concurrent polyradiculopathy
and polyneuropathy, characterized by flaccid paralysis and acute demyelinating changes in the peripheral nervous system., Since GBS has also been reported to be triggered by noninfectious factors such as trauma, the concept of posttraumatic GBS was introduced.
The painful asymmetric paraparesis in our patient was consistent with subacute painful meningoradiculitis seen in the early dissemination period of neuroborreliosis due to the presence of lymphocytic cell increase in the LP, polyradiculopathy
in the EMG and contrast enhancement in leptomeninges, and conus medullaris and cauda equina fibers in the lumbar MRI examination.
Some of the phenotypic variants of CIDP are: Typical CIDP, Sensory CIDP, Chronic immune sensory polyradiculopathy
, Lewis-Sumner syndrome, Focal CIDP, DADS, Acute onset CIDP and Motor CIDP.
Electron microscopy examination of the neural tissue revealed macrophage-mediated myelin stripping, similar to the process of demyelination observed in the acute inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy (AIDN) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculopathy
(CIDP) variants of GBS reported in association with a related flavivirus, Zika virus .

There are five types of neurological syndromes related to diabetes mellitus: distal symmetric polyneuropathy (most frequent), autonomic neuropathy, small-fiber neuropathy (earliest), polyradiculopathy
, and mononeuropathies [4, 5].
Mononeuropathy multiplex (MM), polyradiculopathy
, symptomatic dysautonomia, myopathy, cranial neuropathy and CNS involvement are less common.

mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis," International Journal of Neuroscience, vol.
Patients, who are mostly middle-age, develop a progressive myelopathy which at the early stage of the disease often mimics a polyradiculopathy
or anterior horn cell disorder.
