Abstract

Paraparetic Guillian-Barre Syndrome is an uncommon variant of GBS. We describe a case of a teenage boy, who developed progressive, symmetric weakness of the lower limbs following an upper respiratory tract infection. Post-infectious, monophasic, acute, symmetric course were suggestive of paraparetic GBS which were further confirmed by CSF, electrophysiologic fndings.
