Chronic lymphocytic leukemia manifested by steroid responsive polyneuropathy
We report a patient of acute demyelinating polyneuropathy who on investigations turned out to be suffering from chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (stage 0). Response to steroid therapy suggests an autoimmune process as a cause of polyneuropathy. Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia manifested by acute polyneuropathy has been described rarely in literature.
