Abstract

Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is an acquired disorder with onset in adulthood. The authors describe a patient with a slowly progressing distal upper limb motor neuropathy since age 6 years, in whom definite conduction blocks in upper limbs, outside common entrapment sites, and no sensory involvement were consistent with MMN. IV immunoglobulin treatment produced marked muscle strength improvement and conduction block disappearance. MMN diagnosis should also be considered in childhood.
