Abstract:
Methods : A de-myelinating polyradiculoneuropathy with an acute immune mediator, Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). This study was done to analyse the electro-physiological abnormalities in the first week of GBS in this area because early diagnosis favours a positive outcome after treatment. Basic procedures : The study was conducted to identify 65 clinically diagnosed patients with GBS who reported muscle weakness within a week using electro-physiological tests between 2010 and 2012. Discussion : Electro-physiological studies play an important role in the early detection; characterization & treatment of GBS because timely intervention reduces morbidity and disability. Increased DML, absent F- wave, decreased median with normal Sural SCV (sensory conduction velocity) is diagnostic of early GBS.
