A Rare Case of Acute Motor Axonal Neuropathy - A Subtype of Guillain Barre Syndrome in Pregnancy

Dr. Kategru Pavani | Dr. Suchitra P. | Dr. Srilatha

Abstract: Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is rare in pregnancy with an estimated incidence between 1.2 and 1.9 cases per 100,000 people annually. Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) represents a heterogeneous group of immune mediated peripheral neuropathies. A feature common to all GBS variants is a rapidly evolving polyradiculoneuropathy preceded by a triggering event, most often an infection. GBS generally manifests as a symmetric motor paralysis with or without sensory and autonomic disturbances. GBS should be considered in any pregnant patient complaining of muscle weakness, general malaise, tingling of fingers and respiratory difficulty.
