Experiments in cell cultures, immunocytochemical studies of diseased tissue obtained at biopsy or autopsy, and immunological observa- tions in experimental animals and in patients have recently delineated common effector mechanisms that operate in immune-mediated demyelinating disorders of both the central and peripheral nervous system (CNS, PNS).Cited by: Hartung HP, Jung S, Stoll G, Zielasek J, Schmidt B, Archelos JJ, Toyka KV () Inflammatory mediators in demyelinating disorders of the CNS and PNS.

The prototypical inflammatory demyelinating disease of the CNS is MS, which is traditionally considered to be due to aberrant myelin-reactive T cells that, once activated in the periphery, gain.

Although the first case described by Schilder in as accepted to be an inflammatory demyelinating condition, other cases reported in and were later recognised as being due, respectively, to adrenoleukodystrophy and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.

Causes CIDP is one cause of damage to nerves outside the brain or spinal cord (peripheral neuropathy). Atypical inflammatory demyelinating syndromes are rare disorders that differ from multiple sclerosis owing to unusual clinical or MRI findings or poor response to treatments used for multiple sclerosis.
These syndromes include neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, tumefactive demyelination, Baló's concentric sclerosis, Schilder's disease, and Cited by: Idiopathic inflammatory-demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system Article Literature Review (PDF Available) in Neuroradiology 49(5) June with 4, Reads.
These disorders are distinct from inflammatory, demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis or acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), for which there are no specific biomarkers, other than pathological examination.

It is now appreciated that the CNS does exhibit features of inflammation, and in response to injury, infection or disease, resident CNS cells generate inflammatory mediators, including proinflammatory cytokines, prostaglandins, free radicals and complement, which in turn induce chemokines and adhesion molecules, recruit immune cells, and activate glial by: The primary cellular target in demyelination pathology is believed to be myelin itself or the myelin-forming cells, oligodendrocytes in the CNS and Schwann cells in the peripheral nervous system (PNS).

In its most common clinical course, patients have multiple flares of symptoms at multiple time points, and recover from these attacks to varying degrees (relapsing-remitting MS).

Neuroinflammatory response is primarily a protective mechanism in the brain. However, excessive and chronic inflammatory responses can lead to deleterious effects involving immune cells, brain cells and signaling molecules. Neuroinflammation induces and accelerates pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Multiple sclerosis (MS).Cited by: Title: Etiopathogenesis, Classical Immunotherapy and Innovative Nanotherapeutics for Inflammatory Neurological Disorders VOLUME: 7 ISSUE: 1 Author(s):Maria Jose Sa, Joana Guimaraes, Pedro Abreu, Amelia Mendes and Eliana B.

Other types of demyelinating disease and their causes include: Optic neuritis — inflammation of the optic nerve in one or both eyes. Neuromyelitis optica (Devic's disease) — inflammation and demyelination of the central nervous system, especially of the optic nerve and spinal cord.
There are a large number of demyelinating diseases affecting both the PNS (Figure 1) and CNS (Figure 2). The etiologies are heterogeneous, ranging from genetic disorders to metabolic, infectious or autoimmune mechanisms. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most prevalent of these disorders, with an estimated 3 million patients worldwide.

Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder that causes progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. Symptoms often include tingling or numbness (first in the toes and fingers), weakness of the arms and legs, loss of deep tendon reflexes, fatigue, and abnormal sensations.
Other symptoms may include pain, difficulty. Traumatic injury to the central nervous system (CNS) or the peripheral nervous system (PNS) triggers a cascade of events which culminate in a robust inflammatory reaction.
The role played by inflammation in the course of degeneration and regeneration is not completely elucidated. While, in peripheral nerves, the inflammatory response is assumed to be essential for normal progression of Cited by: Inflammatory demyelinating diseases (IDDs), sometimes called Idiopathic (IIDDs) because the unknown etiology of some of them, and sometimes known as borderline forms of multiple sclerosis, is a collection of multiple sclerosis variants, sometimes considered different diseases, but considered by others to form a spectrum differing only in terms of chronicity, severity, and clinical course.

Thus, some myelin disorders (eg, Guillain-Barré syndrome, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, some other peripheral nerve polyneuropathies) tend to affect primarily the peripheral nerves, and others affect primarily the CNS (see table Disorders That Can Cause Demyelination of the Central Nervous System).
The most commonly. Demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system (CNS) cause acute or relapsing-remitting encephalopathy and other multifocal signs of brain, brainstem, and spinal cord dysfunction. They affect white matter, which is formed by myelin contained within oligodendrocytes, providing electrical insulation for neurons and neuronal connections.
Increasing appreciation for the role of inflammation in neurodegenerative diseases of the CNS, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease (PD), and the prototypic neuroinflammatory disease multiple sclerosis (MS), has identified differential immune responses involving the adaptive versus the innate immune systems at various stages of by: In fact, the latest review of plasma exchange use by the Canadian Apheresis Group indicates that 3 neurological disorders (myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy) are among the 5 most frequent indications for this therapy.

(See also Overview of Peripheral Nervous System Disorders.) Symptoms of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) resemble those of Guillain-Barré syndrome.
However, progression for > 2 months differentiates CIDP from Guillain-Barré syndrome, which is monophasic and self-limited. CIDP develops in 2 to 5% of patients initially.

Demyelinating diseases of the CNS can be classified according to their pathogenesis into several categories: demyelination due to inflammatory processes, viral demyelination, demyelination caused by acquired metabolic derangements, hypoxic–ischaemic forms of demyelination and demyelination caused by focal compression.
A demyelinating disease is any disease of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged. This damage impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves. In turn, the reduction in conduction ability causes deficiency in sensation, movement, cognition, or other functions depending on which nerves are involved.
Demyelinating diseases can be caused by genetics, infectious. Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive weakness and impaired sensory function in the legs and arms. The disorder, which is sometimes called chronic relapsing polyneuropathy, is caused by damage to the myelin sheath (the fatty covering that wraps around and protects nerve fibers) of the peripheral nerves.

This unifying theme of this book-with sections on mechanisms of defense and neuropathogenesis, neurological diseases, infections of the nervous system, neuropharmacology, and novel therapies-is interactions of the immune and nervous systems. It also discusses the role of inflammation as a key mediator of different brain disorders.

Hence, while determining the diagnosis of this condition, it is necessary to differentiate it from such similar diseases in order to come up with the optimum treatment plan.
