Although the patients initially responded to monotherapy with methylprednisolone, intravenous immunoglobulins, or rituximab, they manifested persistent neurologic deficits and relapsing signs. Treatment with rituximab in combination with intravenous immunoglobulin, however, resulted in significant longterm clinical improvement.
