Abstract

Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy, which is often related to post-infectious etiology. However, GBS has also been reported to be caused by non-infectious factors such as trauma. This report describes a rare case of post-traumatic GBS with dramatic response to immunoglobulin therapy. And here, we also discussed about the importance of differential diagnosis with critical illness polyneuropathy.
