Resumo: The authors report five patients with inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy with a Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS)-like onset and initial clinical features, but with persistent symptoms similar to chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Patients in the chronic phase improved with corticosteroid or IV immunoglobulin therapy. Patients with apparent GBS who show persistent symptoms may benefit from corticosteroids or other treatment that is beneficial in the management of CIDP.
