Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recently, demyelinating polyneuropathies have been reported in end-stage renal disease patients. These acute and subacute neuropathies share a demyelinating feature and may develop after the initiation of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. The pathogenesis of these non-chronic forms of neuropathy remains unclear. We report a case of subacute polyneuropathy that posed a clinical dilemma.
