Guillain Barr é sendromu varyantı fasiyal dipleji ve parestezi: Olgu sunumu ve literatürün gözden geçirilmesi

Gu i llai n Barré s yndrome (GBS) is a disorder characterized by areflexia and progressive ascending lower extremity weakness. Bilateral peripheral facial diplegia and paresthesia is a rare GBS variant in which the preceding infection, auto-antibody positivity and treatment models are stil l unclear. In this rare varian t, no case with an etiology of varicella infection has been reported yet. Here, we report a case with facial diplegia and parestesia secondary to varicella infection and discuss clinical, electrophysiological and laboratory findings, and review the literat ure focusing on the latest reports on this disease.
