Abstract

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) can lead to prominent nerve hypertrophy, which can mimic other forms of neuropathy radiologically. Neuro-ophthalmological complications can also occur in CIDP, either at presentation or chronically in the disorder. This can also cause diagnostic difficulties. We report three cases of neuro-ophthalmological complications of CIDP: two cases of papilloedema and one case of proptosis. In all three cases cranial nerve hypertrophy was present. CIDP should be considered in neuro-ophthalmological presentations associated with cranial/spinal nerve root hypertrophy.
