External ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia complicating acute infectious polyneuritis.

Autor(es): Weintraub M. I.

Resumo: A 13-year-old girl suddenly experienced ataxia, bilateral external ophthalmoplegia, and areflexia. She was previously healthy but several family members had had a flu-like illness. Cerebrospinal fluid punctures demonstrated a persistent lymphocytosis and protein elevation. Clinical improvement occurred in several months. These findings represent a variant of Guillain-Barré-Strohl syndrome (infectious polyneuritis), a systemic illness rather than a primary ophthalmologic entity.
