Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is a rare but serious sensorimotor disorder that is presumed to result from a probable immunologic antibody-mediated reaction, along with interstitial and perivascular infiltration of the endoneurium by inflammatory T cells and macrophages.
