AMSAN Type of Guillain Barre Syndrome- Case Report

Guillain-BarrĂ© syndrome is an autoimmune disorder characterised by acute idiopathic polyneuritis. In the peripheral nervous system, this is known as Monophasic Immune Mediated Disorder (MIMD) and acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy. In a 100,000-person population, about 1-3 people were affected. Guillain-Barre Syndrome has two subtypes: AMAN and AMSAN (GBS). This disease’s precise cause is unknown. GBS causes respiratory paralysis in 2-12 percent of those who contract it. Immunoglobulins and plasmapheresis are often used to treat this disease and are considered normal therapy. A case of an 18-year-old male patient with generalised weakness for 10 days and ascending paralysis followed by descending paralysis for one day is presented. It was determined that the patient had AMSAN type GBS based on family history and nerve conduction studies. Steroids, Nutrition Therapy, and Physiotherapy were used to treat the patient’s condition. In this patient, the combinational therapy was successful and aided in a faster recovery.
