Tony - Although I have not heard of it as CIDP, I believe that you're
referring to a variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome known as CIP - Chronic
Idiopathic Poly- neuritis.
I had the non-chronic form of this disease in 1991 and as a result have
kept in touch with the Guillain-Barre Foundation International. They are
located in Wynnewood, PA. - phone # (215) 667-0131.
Their pamphlet, "Guillain-Barre Syndrome - an overview for the layperson"
might be helpful. If you like, I will photocopy and fax to you, the
section on CIP, so that you would have it sooner. E-mail to

I hope this will point you towards some information that will be of help
to your friend's father.
