Abstract
Acute sensory neuropathy (ASN) is rare and is characterized by acute onset of sensory ataxia, loss of deep tendon reflexes and impaired vibratory and joint position sensations. Similar to Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) with prominent sensory ataxia, a few cases of ASN associated with antiganglioside antibodies have been reported. This suggests that a common autoimmue mechanism operates in some cases of ASN and of GBS with sensory ataxia. We report a patient with ASN associated with anti-GD1b IgG antibody.
