Abstract: Guillain—Barré syndrome (GBS) is an inflammatory polyneuropathy characterized by acute onset, rapid progression, symmetric muscular weakness, pain, and paresthesias. The incidence of GBS in the pediatric age group is 0.8 cases per 100,000; 50%-70% of the cases are preceded by respiratory or gastrointestinal infectious episodes or vaccination. The etiopathogenesis of GBS has been hypothesized to involve a direct immune-mediated mechanism against the peripheral nerves. A series of 20 patients managed in the Depa… Show more

“…Ataxia is one of the components of ophthalmoplegia and areflexia of the triad of Miller-Fisher syndrome, which belongs to the group of Guillain-Barrè syndrome and is linked to the presence of the antibody anti CQ1B. Diagnosis of this syndrome is obtained via an analysis of cerebral liquor, which displays a dissociation between high CSF protein levels and a low or absent leucocyte response [19]. …”
