Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy is known to cause enlargement of the cranial nerves, particularly the trigeminal nerve. Several cases of orbital neuromas associated with this condition have been published, but surgical treatment has not been reported. The authors present a case of bilateral supraorbital neuromas associated with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy that underwent surgical excision and histopathologic examination.

The authors report the surgical treatment of bilateral supraorbital neuromas in a patient with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy.
