Vasculitic neuropathy mimicking guillain‐barré syndrome

Academic Article


  • Vasculitic neuropathy classically manifests as a subacute mononeuritis multiplex or polyneuropathy. Patients with a Guillain‐Barré syndrome (GBS)–like presentation are usually not considered to have an underlying vasculitis. We describe 2 patients with rapidly progressive areflexic paralysis that was initially diagnosed as GBS, in whom vasculitic neuropathy was found histologically.
