We report on a patient who had chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy following liver transplantation for hepatitis B‐induced fulminate hepatic failure. Possible symptomatic recurrence of hepatitis B in the graft prompted a reduction in the cyclosporine dosage, which may have triggered the immune response leading to demyelination. Initial plasma exchange and then intravenous immune globulin after relapse led to Marchked clinical improvement.
