What is CANOMAD syndrome?

  • CANOMAD syndrome: A rare syndrome characterized by a range of abnormalities caused by immune-mediated nerve demyelination. There is usually no loss of limb function associated with the disorder. The face, throat, mouth and eye symptoms (weakness of the muscles) usually come and go.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list CANOMAD syndrome as a "rare disease".
