Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy as a paraneoplastic manifestation of colorectal carcinoma: what do we know?
The pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) remains highly debated among experts. In recent times, literature has divulged a riveting yet plausible association between colorectal carcinoma and CIDP as its paraneoplastic ramification. Initially, research suggested that chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) was caused solely by macrophages. However, recent studies have insinuated towards an alternative pathogenesis, one involving autoantibodies against paranodal junction proteins. These two distinct mechanisms are the primary contenders responsible for the development of CIDP, rendering it an elusive paraneoplastic manifestation of colorectal carcinoma.
