Journal of Clinical Neuromuscular Disease: March 2013 - Volume 14 - Issue 3 - p 110-113 doi: 10.1097/CND.0b013e3182852542 Buy Metrics Abstract In the literature, the term fulminant Guillain–Barré syndrome is used to refer to patients with Guillain–Barré syndrome with rapidly progressive and severe weakness and/or comatose state mimicking brain death. We present the case of a 53-year-old man with fulminant Guillain–Barré syndrome with discrepancy in central nervous system and peripheral nervous system recovery. Our review of literature confirms that these patients often have good and relatively rapid recovery of central nervous system function, whereas peripheral nervous system function is relatively delayed and often incomplete. © 2013 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
