The dropped head syndrome with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy.


:The dropped head syndrome occurs in a variety of neuromuscular disorders. We present a woman with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy who developed this syndrome, likely reflecting severe demyelination of nerves to cervical paraspinal muscles.
