 en Short Report - Visual loss with papilledema in Guillain-Barre syndrome
P.S. Kharbanda, S. Prabhakar, V. Lal, C.P. Das


Papilledema and raised intracranial pressure have been reported in association with Guillain-Barre syndrome. Papilledema is usually asympotomatic or associated with mild visual field defects, without any visual loss. The cerebrospinal fluid protein is usually reported to be high. A case of a 35 year old lady is reported, who presented with headache, diplopia and progressive visual loss in both eyes and limb weakness with hyporeflexia. Optic fundus examination showed bilateral papilledema. She had features of pseudotumor cerebri. Nerve conduction studies were suggestive of polyradiculopathy. The unusual things in this case, were the profound visual loss, normal cerebrospinal fluid protein and the presentation of papilledema before the limb weakness.
