Guillain-Barr? syndrome (GBS) is an autoimmune polyneuropathy that presents with acute onset and rapid progression of ascending quadriparesis and hyporeflexia, which can be triggered by various conditions. However, GBS following cerebral infarction is very rare. We describe herein a patient with facial diplegia, ophthalmoplegia, and areflexia that occurred during acute cerebral infarction. The symptoms were improved after intravenous immunoglobulin treatment. The details of this case suggest that GBS is triggered by immune dysregulation after acute cerebral infarction.
