Sheridan J M, & Smith D. (2010). Atypical guillain-barre in the emergency department. West J Emerg Med, 11(1), 80-2. ( 2/2010 - Present )
Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), although an uncommon diagnosis in the emergency department (ED), usually presents as one of the more common chief complaints-weakness. In this report we present an unusual case of weakness, initially seen in the ED and sent home only to return with worsening symptoms and ultimately found to be GBS.
