Resumo
The most frequent neurologic manifestations of hepatitis C virus infection include peripheral neuropathy axonal type and central nervous system (CNS) vasculitis. Affected patients usually have cryoglobulinemia and other signs of vasculitis. Demyelinating lesions, both central and peripheral are rarely described. We present a case of simultaneous peripheral nervous system and CNS demyelination that comes in relapsing episodes, with negative cryoglobulins.
