Abstract

We present a woman with acute onset of bilateral ophthalmoparesis and ataxia occurring 4 weeks after gastroenteritis. Serum antibody titers against asialo-GM1 and GD1a, typically associated with inflammatory axonal neuropathies, were elevated but titers against anti-GQ1b, the most commonly found antibody found in the Miller Fisher variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome were not. No other etiology for ophthalmoparesis was found despite extensive patient evaluation. Intravenous immunoglobulin was admin-istered, and the patient gradually improved over subsequent months. This case is unique for its antiganglioside antibody profile associated with Miller Fisher syndrome.
