IgG anti-GQ1b antibody, ptosis, diplopia, miller fisher syndrome


In this report we describe a rare presentation of Miller Fisher syndrome, a variant of Guillain Barre Syndrome. This distinctive syndrome is an acute immune mediated neuropathies usually preceded by an infectious illness characterized by total external ophthalmoplegia, severe ataxia and tendon areflexia. The presence of the IgG anti-GQ1b antibody in serum is an excellent diagnostic marker for MFS. This antibody often cross reacts with GT1a and is patho physiologically associated with ophthalmoplegia or ataxia in MFS and GBS.
