Abstract

This document presents the guidelines for anti-ganglioside antibody testing that have been developed following a consensus process built on questionnaire-based surveys, internet contacts, and discussions at workshops of the sponsoring Italian Association of Neuroimmunology (AINI) congresses. Main clinical information on dysimmune peripheral neuropathies, indications and limits of anti-ganglioside antibody testing, instructions for result interpretation, and an agreed laboratory protocol (Appendix) are reported for the communicative community of neurologists and clinical pathologists.
