Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) is an autoimmune disorder. The most common presentation of which is acute onset motor predominant ascending paralysis leading to quadriparesis and sometimes respiratory failure needing mechanical ventilation . Cranial nerves supplied muscles are usually spared except frequent involvement of VII cranial nerves (50%) [2,3]. The illness usually preceded by febrile infection involving upper respiratory or GI tract. Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) and its variants are para infectious (2/3 cases) neurological illness involving the lower motor neuron but they can also involve CNS. BBE and MFS are the 2 variants of GBS with central nervous system involvement [4,5]. The present case series highlights the variable presentation and laboratory findings in BBE and MFS, which may help clinicians in early recognition and timely management of the condition.
