polirradiculoneuritis
Scope note: Enfermedades caracterizadas por lesiones o disfunciones en las que participan múltiples nervios periféricos y raíces nerviosas. El proceso puede afectar principalmente a la mielina o a los axones de los nervios. Dos de las formas más comunes son la poliradiculopatía inflamatoria aguda (SÍNDROME DE GUILLAIN-BARRE) y la POLIRRADICULONEUROPATÍA CRÓNICA INFLAMATORIA DESMIELINIZANTE. La polirradiculoneuritis hace referencia a la inflamación de múltiples nervios periféricos y de las raíces nerviosas medulares.

Scope note: Diseases characterized by injury or dysfunction involving multiple peripheral nerves and nerve roots. The process may primarily affect myelin or nerve axons. Two of the more common demyelinating forms are acute inflammatory polyradiculopathy (GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME) and POLYRADICULONEUROPATHY, CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY DEMYELINATING. Polyradiculoneuritis refers to inflammation of multiple peripheral nerves and spinal nerve roots.
Annotation: do not confuse with POLYRADICULOPATHY (dis of multiple nerve roots) nor with RADICULOPATHY (dis of a single nerve root)
