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.
