Abstract

Critical illness polyneuropathy developed in 8 patients aged 22-84 years in our intensive care units. This acute polyneuropathy, predominantly axonal and motor, develops in the setting of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome and multi-organ failure. It is found in about 50% of patients treated in intensive care units for more than 2 weeks. In those who survive, neurological and functional recovery is the rule.
