In brief: IVIG treatment

IVIG is helpful for curing a condition called AIDP, or Guillain Barre syndrome, which is a type of neuropathy.
It's cousin, CIDP, is treated by IVIG, but it is not cured. Myasthenia gravis is a condition that causes weakness. It is also treated with IVIG, but it is not cured. Few illnesses can be cured in neurology, but many can be treated.

In brief: Sometimes

IVIG is anti-inflammatory (through multiple not well characterized pathways) and proves helpful in some autoantibody (antibody that attacks your own body) diseases, which include some neuropathies.
It is not a cure, but it can certainly be an effective treatment.

In brief: Yes

But it depends on what the cause of the process is.
