Simultaneous bilateral peripheral facial paralysis is a rare variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome
This case report describes a 63-year-old male presenting with five days progressing bilateral peripheral facial paralysis and mild sensory symptoms. Cerebrospinal fluid showed albumin-cytological dissociation. Nerve conduction studies showed slightly reduced conduction velocity, slightly prolonged F-wave latency and temporal dispersion. Following treatment with IV immunoglobulin (0.4 g/kg/day for five consecutive days) recovery was prominent, though incomplete. This is believed to be the first described case in Denmark of the very rare variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome termed “facial diplegia and paraesthesias”.
