Abstract

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an immune mediated polyradiculoneuropathy. GBS manifests as a rapidly evolving areflexic ascending type flaccid motor paralysis. Mycoplasma infection is known to cause GBS, but serologically confirmed cases have not been reported in Sri Lanka. We report a case of Guillain-Barré syndrome presenting in association with Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection in a 27-year-old previously healthy male.
