Acute axonal idiopathic polyneuropathy: a Guillain-Barré syndrome variant?

Autor(es): Magi S,Sabatelli M,Mignogna T,Porcu C,Tonali P

Resumo: We report 7 cases of acute polyneuropathy fitting the NINDS diagnostic criteria for GBS. Electrophysiological study and sural nerve biopsy revealed a picture of axonal polyneuropathy, without changes suggesting demyelination. We discuss whether the acute idiopathic axonal neuropathy belongs to the GBS spectrum or represents a separate clinico-pathological entity.
