The authors presented a rare case of chronic demyelinative polyneuropathy Guillain-Barré type in 49-year old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus. The diagnostic was based on electroneurographic examination and immunodiffusion of cerebrospinal fluid proteins. The authors indicated to the high effectiveness of high doses of immunoglobulins administrated intravenously after 3 months of the beginning of peripheral symptoms. At the onset of the disease the immunosuppression by use of prednisolone and cyclophosphamide was ineffective.
