Author Affiliations

Abstract

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an acquired immune-mediated inflammatory disorder of the myelinopathies class. One of its main manifestations is an irregularity of the temperature sensitivity. Irregularity of the temperature sensitivity can be identified by computer thermosensometry. Computer thermosensometry can assess the condition of heat and cold sensitivity, pain thresholds of heat and cold. The most common symptoms of the temperature sensitivity disorders at CIDP are the dysesthesia to cold.

Key words

diagnosis, computer thermosensometry, sensory variant, thermoesthesia, heat pain, cold pain, cold dysesthesia, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP)
