ABSTRACT
A 33-year-old women developed weakness in all limbs 3 days prior to admission. Motor examination showed decreased strength in all limbs, but sensory examination was normal. Deep tendon reflexes were areflexia. Electrophysiological examination showed conduction blocks with nearly normal conduction velocities and terminal latencies in motor nerves and normal amplitudes and velocities in sensory nerves. Her serum was positive for IgG antibodies to gangliosides GM1, GD1b, and galactocerebroside. Acute motor conduction block neuropathy may be another variant of Guillain-Barre
Key words: Guillain-Barre syndrome, Motor neuropathy, Conduction block
