Abstract: Guillain-Barr syndrome (GBS) is defined as heterogeneous group of autoimmune polyradiculopathies, involving sensory, motor and autonomic nerves. It is the most common cause of rapidly progressive flaccid paralysis. Radiological studies are ordered to exclude other causes and in cases where nerve conduction studies and CSF examination are equivocal. In the brain the facial nerve (CN VII) is the most commonly affected. Brain parenchyma findings in MRI are usually not encountered. We present a case of Guillain Barre Syndrome with incidental findings on MRI brain.
