Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is a safe treatment to treat various neurological disorders, but fatal thrombotic events as rare complications have been reported. A 54-year-old woman with Guillain-Barre syndrome complained of dyspnea during IVIG treatment. She was finally diagnosed with pulmonary thromboembolism. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of pulmonary thromboembolism associated with IVIG treatment in a Korean patient with Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Key words: Guillain-Barre syndrome, Intravenous immunoglobulin, Pulmonary thromboembolism
