How might multifocal motor neuropathy be treated?

Treatment for multifocal motor neuropathy varies. Some individuals experience only mild, modest symptoms and require no treatment.[1] For others, treatment generally consists of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) or immunosuppressive therapy with cyclophosphamide.[1] Improvement in muscle strength usually begins within 3 to 6 weeks after treatment is started. Most patients who receive treatment early experience little, if any, disability. However, there is evidence of slow progression over many years.[1]
