Some types of peripheral neuropathies:

A demyelinating polyneuropathy occurs when myelin is damaged or destroyed along with axons. Common forms of demyelinating polyneuropathies include Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS), Henoch-Schönlein purpura, and acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP). GBS is the most common form of demyelinating polyneuropathy. 

The disorder typically presents with symptoms such as weakness and paralysis beginning in the legs and eventually progressing to arms and torso.In addition to demyelination, other neuropathies may also manifest with axonal damage. They are referred to as axonal neuropathies: mononeuropathy or multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN). 

MMN occurs when there is both demyelination and axonal degeneration causing impaired motor function and altered sensory distribution on nerve conduction studies.The causes of neuropathies are not well known but are suspected of being due to a complex interaction between genetic, environmental, and immunological factors. 

There is no cure for neuropathies and the term “chronic progressive inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy” (CPIDP) is used to describe a group of disorders with similar clinical presentation that do not have a known cause or mechanism. Currently, there is no cure for CIDP.
