  • Provide support to patients and their families;
  • Promote financial support for the group and related activities (eg medical research).


Inflammatory Neuropathies

Inflammatory neuropathies typically destroy the outer layer of the nerve sheath. They are usually demyelinating neuropathies characterised by the infiltration of peripheral nerves with lymphocytes and macrophages, cells that are associated with inflammation.

The most common inflammatory neuropathies are those associated with an acute onset and rapidly progressive course (Guillain-Barré Syndrome – GBS) and those with a chronic course (Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy – CIDP and Multifocal Motor Neuropathy – MMN). Other types of inflammatory neuropathies exist, but are less common.
