A patient with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) and central demyelinating disease is described in whom striking nodular filling defects on multiple lumbar-sacral nerve roots, mimicking neurofibromata, were observed at myelography and magnetic resonance imaging. We suggest that these lesions are secondary to recurrent segmental demyelination and remyelination and that the differential diagnosis of this radiological feature should include CIDP.
