Abstract

Guillain Barre vs. Miastenia Gravis as an Atypical Presentation of SARS COV 2 By Molecular Mimic: Purpose of a Case

Jesús Monter Pére

Introduction: Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute polyradiculoneuropathy due to an autoimmune process, which is triggered in most cases by a viral or bacterial infection, its incidence is 1.75/100,000 inhabitants worldwide. It is a very rare pathology and even less frequent are the cases in young women, so we carry out a review of its epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnostic criteria and management. Objective: In this work the case of a young adult woman with GBS is presented.

Description of the case: This is a 22-year-old female patient, who was admitted for 10 days at the ESE Hospital La Divina Misericordia with a picture of approximately 1 hour of evolution consisting of dysphagia, odynophagia, asthenia, episodes of dizziness, adynamia, accompanied by a decrease in muscle strength in the upper limbs, also associated with loss of tongue sensitivity.

Conclusions: GBS in young women is a rare variant. In most reports the course of the episodes is unpredictable.
