Case Report - Simultaneous multiple cranial nerve neuropathies and intravenous immunoglobulin treatment in diabetes mellitus|
Uluduz Derya, Bozluolcay Melda, Ince Birsen, Kiziltan Meral
Asymmetrical, simultaneous multiple cranial nerve palsies and mild signs of peripheral neuropathy in diabetic patients may cause difficulties in diagnosis as they are relatively rare. A case of a 55-year-old diabetic woman who developed simultaneous right VII and left III, IV, VI cranial nerve palsies with spared pupils is presented here. We also discuss the role of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) in the management of this condition and suggest that simultaneous multiple cranial palsies may have a good response to IVIG treatment.
