    Purpose: Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) is an acute immune mediated de-mylelinating poly-radiculoneuropathy. As early diagnosis favors a good outcome after treatment, this study was carried out to analyze the electro-physiological abnormalities in the first week of GBS in this region. Basic procedures: The study was carried out for early confirmation of GBS in 65 clinically diagnosed patients reporting within a week of muscle weakness by electro-physiological tests in the years 2010-12. Results: Slowing of motor conduction velocities, decreased amplitude and increased distal motor latencies (DML) was seen in peroneal, tibial, median and ulnar nerves in descending order of severity. Conduction block was seen in the lower limb in 10 (15.38%) patients. F-wave was completely absent in upper and lower limbs in 50 (76.92%) patients whil.. View More»
