ABSTRACT
Primary Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection can manifest with a broad spectrum of neurological complications. There are only rare reports of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) supervening on meningitis in patients with primary EBV infection. Clear evidence of central nervous system infection makes it difficult for the clinicians to consider a diagnosis of GBS. We present a patient with GBS supervening on meningitis in primary EBV infection.
Key words: Epstein-Barr virus; Guillain-Barré syndrome; Meningitis
