A case of 83-year-old woman with generalized flaccid limb weakness following sepsis and no benefit from physical therapy is reported. Symptoms have been attributed to an acute assonal polyneuropathy with muscular involvement, the so called critical illness myopathy and neuropathy (CRI.MY.NE.). CRI.MY.NE. is often a complication of sepsis and multiorgan failure, occurring in 70% of su- ch patients. This clinical entity deserves a particular attention in geriatric reha- bilitation units where it is often misdiagnosed as simple hypokinetic syndrome after prolonged bed rest due to acute illnesses.
