Optic neuritis in the Landry-Guillain-Barré-Strohl syndrome.

Autor(es): Behan P. O.; Lessell S.; Roche M.

Resumo: A patient with typical Landry-Guillain-Barré-Strohl syndrome (LG-BS) developed bilateral optic neuritis. Laboratory studies showed hypersensitivity to both central and peripheral nervous tissue myelin. The occurrence of optic neuritis is presumably due to autohypersensitivity to central nervous tissue myelin. The initial lesions of the LG-BS syndrome in the peripheral nerves might have liberated sequestered antigens that cross-reacted with central nervous system myelin.
