Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) - an immune-mediated condition - is the most common cause of acute flaccid paralysis, since the elimination of poliomyelitis. We present a case of GBS as a rare complication of meningococcal meningitis based on clinical features, nerve conduction studies and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. GBS has rarely been described after meningitis. This case is unique in that our findings show that GBS may be observed after meningococcal meningitis.
