IVIG Treatment Resolving Peripheral Neuropathy

In a 2003 study, four patients with the following diseases (respectively) had the following problems: Sjo ̈gren’s syndrome, Churg-Strauss vasculitis, SLE, and vaccination induced vasculitis. After having been administered IVIG treatment, their neuropathy was resolved.

The study concluded that IVIG may be beneficial in cases of resistant vasculitic peripheral neuropathy. IVIG should probably be considered as a sole or adjuvant treatment for patients with contraindications to conventional treatment, or alternatively, for patients in whom conventional treatment has failed.
