Guillain‐Barré Syndrome with bilateral facial diplegia secondary to SARS-Cov-2 infection: case report

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The new coronavirus known as SARS-CoV-2, due to its similarity to the previous SARS, was detected for the first time in December 2019 in Wuhan City, China. It is characterized by causing, in most patients, nonspecific symptoms similar to those of a common flu. It has been reported that many of COVID-19 patients presented neurological symptoms that involve the central (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS). There have been several reports of patients who presented Guillain‐Barré Syndrome (GBS) related to COVID-19 infection, with sensory and motor compromise in the extremities. In this work, we will describe a case of GBS, with bilateral facial palsy, as the only manifestation of the neurological compromise following SARS-Cov-2 infection. We will include a complete neurophysiological study and discusse some pathophysiological mechanisms.
