Guillain-Barr é syndrome following varicella-zoster virus infection
We describe the frequency, clinical features, and electrophysiological and immunological phenotypes of Guillain-Barr é Syndrome (GBS) patients treated at a single institution in Bangladesh who had preceding chicken pox (primary Varicella-zoster virus [VZV] infection) within 4 weeks of GBS onset. A literature review of GBS cases preceding VZV infection is also provided. Diagnosis of GBS was based on the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke criteria for GBS. Serum anti-VZV IgM and IgG antibodies were quantified by indirect chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA); anti-Campylobacter jejuni IgG, IgM, and IgA ...

Miller fisher syndrome presenting with prodromal thunderclap headache
Conclusions Although not radiographically confirmed, we postulate the headache may have been due to reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS), given the characteristics of the headache and dramatic response to nimodipine. Although headache is infrequently observed in Miller Fisher syndrome, the exact aetiology is unclear and there has been no previously reported association with RCVS.

Zika associated Guillain-Barre syndrome in the United States (P2.327)
Conclusions:Zika can induce GBS after a brief viral illness. Neuropathy can be a mixture of demyelinating and axonal. Dysautonomia may also be present including severe dysphagia, orthostatics and retention.Zika RNA has a short detection window in serum and CSF making a diagnosis time sensitive. Serological assays using IgM and IgG cross-react with other flaviviruses making them unable to differentiate between recent Zika exposure and cross reactivity with Dengue and Chikungunya. Our pt likely had prior exposure to Dengue, being from an endemic area. Prior Dengue exposure may possibly modulate the response to Zika via antib...
