Long-standing Multifocal Motor Neuropathy Presenting With Delayed Clinical Features of Anti-Myelin-Associated Glycoprotein Neuropathy and Elevated Anti-Myelin-Associated Glycoprotein Antibody Titers

Bernardo, Katrina A; Weiss, Michael D
ABSTRACT/UNASSIGNED:Multifocal motor neuropathy with conduction block (MMN) and anti-myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) neuropathy are rare chronic acquired demyelinating neuropathies with distinct clinical and electrophysiological characteristics. These neuropathies are generally not known to coexist. This report describes a patient with long-standing MMN who subsequently developed clinical features of anti-MAG neuropathy. This suggests that subtypes of chronic inflammatory neuropathies may not be sharply defined. In addition, a presentation of MMN with anti-MAG titers may be a prognostic indicator of poor response to standard MMN treatment.
