Resumo: The virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (VAHS) is a lymphoproliferative disorder induced by viral infection. The peripheral nervous system is rarely involved in this syndrome and, when reported, the involvement has been axonal in nature. This paper presents a case of Guillain-Barré syndrome accompanied by VAHS subsequent to Epstein-Barr virus infection. The patient's condition improved following treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin infusion and high-dose corticosteroids.
