Combined central and peripheral demyelination (CCPD) is a rare chronic inflammatory disorder of the nervous system. We describe the case of a patient with a history of recurrent myelitis that acutely and simultaneously developed a brain tumour-like lesion and a sensitive-motor demyelinating polyneuropathy. The diagnosis of CCPD was supported by a detailed diagnostic workup. Up to date, no similar cases have been reported in the literature.
