The authors present a 75-year-old patient with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and ophthalmoplegia. The patient had recurrent exacerbations and remissions of her polyneuropathy over the course of one year. Antibodies to ganglioside GM-I were not detected. Ophthalmoplegia in CIDP is uncommon, but is reported to occur in 3-8% of patients. Ophthalmologists should be aware of the association of CIDP and ophthalmoplegia.
