CANOMAD Syndrome

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy


  • Motor weakness affecting the oculomotor and bulbar muscles is present as either a fixed or relapsing-remitting feature. Clinical electrophysiology and nerve biopsy show demyelinating and axonal features.[orpha.net]
  • In CANOMAD the IgM antibody is abnormally present. The term “paraprotein” actually refers to any abnormal plasma protein associated with a disease.[rarediseases.info.nih.gov]

  • Management and treatment Plasma exchange and intravenous immunoglobulin have been reported with temporary benefit in some cases. Other treatments (corticosteroids, beta-interferons and cytotoxic drugs) remain to be evaluated.[orpha.net]
  • Prednisolone and IVIG are equally efficacious for the treatment of CIDP. Although the former is inexpensive in the short term, long-term side effects of steroid treatment favor IVIG as the first-line therapy.[ahcmedia.com]

  • Prognosis - CANOMAD syndrome Infants and children are rarely affected with chronic CAD, although M pneumoniae and infectious mononucleosis are diseases of young persons.[checkorphan.org]
  • Prognosis The functional outcome is generally guarded-to-poor with the majority of patients suffering some degree of permanent disability from the sensory ataxia that defines the illness.[orpha.net]
  • Mild to moderate primary (unknown cause) cold agglutinin disease can also be associated with a good prognosis if excessive exposure to the cold is avoided.[en.wikipedia.org]


  • Etiology The etiology remains incompletely characterized. Evidence suggests direct damage to dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and to the nodal axolemma. It is generally accepted that antibodies against gangliosides are pathogenic.[orpha.net]
