Comprehensive Rehabilitation for Acute Motor Axonal Neuropathy (AMAN) in a Paediatric Patient: A Case Report and Functional - Based Intervention Approach

Dr. Rajeev Kumar Singh | Dr. Prince Rohilla


Abstract: This case report discusses the physiotherapeutic management of a 6 - year - old male with Acute Motor Axonal Neuropathy (AMAN), a rare subtype of Guillain - Barre Syndrome, characterized by severe respiratory symptoms and ascending polyneuropathy. The patient presented with significant respiratory compromise, requiring ventilatory support and neurorehabilitation. This article describes a comprehensive rehabilitation program aimed at regaining the patient?s independence and functional abilities, emphasizing functional - based interventions. The intervention included a variety of exercises and therapies targeting strength, balance, gait, and cardiorespiratory function. The case outcome showed significant improvement in mobility and overall function. This report highlights the importance of functionally - based rehabilitation approaches for GBS in paediatric patients and suggests the potential benefits of such interventions.
