Abstract

This case report describes a successfully managed rare variant of Guillain-Barre´ Syndrome (GBS), the pharyngeal-cervical-brachial (PCB) variant, in a 5-year-old child which is characterized by the involvement of oropharyngeal, neck and upper limb muscles, without disturbed consciousness or ataxia. Since early treatment and supportive care yield successful outcome, it is important for the treating physician to be familiar with other diseases that mimic the disease and variants for prompt and accurate diagnosis.
