CIDP stands for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. It is a type of autoimmune disorder that is caused due to the damage to the myelin sheath. Myelin sheath is a protective covering that surrounds the peripheral nerves. It can occur in both men as well as women. But it is more common in young ones.
