1/2. Relapsing inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy in a diabetic patient.

    Inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathies exhibit well-known ultrastructural lesions of the peripheral nerve, both in acute cases, i.e., guillain-barre syndrome, and in relapsing, sub-acute and chronic cases. We present a case of relapsing inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy in a diabetic patient with a biopsy exhibiting these lesions, as well as a widening of the outermost myelin lamellae in some fibers. Such associated lesions are classic in experimental inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathies, but have not been reported in human pathology. ( info)

2/2. Late onset of guillain-barre syndrome.

    The guillain-barre syndrome (GBS) usually occurs within one month of the precipitating cause. It is the purpose of this paper to show that typical cases may, however, appear weeks to months later. We have reviewed the collected data on these cases and suggest that they provide evidence which is in favour of a humoral, rather than a cell-mediated, aetiology for GBS. ( info)
