Steroid Responsive Mononeuritis Multiplex in the Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome.
Front Neurol. 2016; 7:207.FN

Abstract

The Cronkhite-Canada syndrome (CCS) is a rare disorder of unknown origin characterized by generalized gastrointestinal polyposis, alopecia, hyperpigmentation, and onychodystrophy. We report a case of CCS with concomitant presentation of mononeuritis multiplex. The electrophysiological findings and steroid responsiveness suggests presence of an autoimmune mechanism.
