[Guillain-Barré syndrome with dysphagia after frontal sinusitis].
One week after an acute sinusitis, a male patient developed a hypernasal voice, dysphagia, diplopic images, ataxia and paresthesias. He had paresis of the glossopharyngeal and abducens nerves, weakness of the arms and legs, and reflex deficiency. The neurography showed a motor axonal demyelinating neuropathy, so that the diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome was made. After five courses of plasmapheresis, the symptoms improved rapidly.
