Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), or acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP), is typically characterised by rapidly evolving areflexic motor weakness. Miller-Fisher syndrome (MFS) is a rare varian t of GBS characterised by the triad of opthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia. Unlike GBS, MFS has an excellent prognosis; hence early clinical recognition may save the patient from costly therapy.
