Abstract: Landry Guillain-Barré syndrome is an acute onset,
progressive, bilateral symmetrical polyneuropathy of autoimmune origin.
Neuropathy is due to immune attack of the peripheral nerve antigens, which
exhibit molecular mimicry with the antigens of the preceding infectious agent,
usually of acute respiratory and gastrointestinal illnesses. Pulmonary
tuberculosis is widespread in developing countries and it is showing resurgence
in the developed countries. We report a case of Guillan-Barré syndrome
in association with pulmonary tuberculosis in a 9-year-old child.
