Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Landry-Guillain-Barre-Strohl Syndrome (LGBS) is a rare occurrence in pregnancy with only 38 previously reported cases in the literature. A case of a 26 year old Ghanaian woman who presented at thirty weeks gestation with limb weakness, facial diplegia, dysarthria, dysphagia and CSF cytoalbuminic dissociation and who made complete recovery before delivery of a normal full term baby is described. This is the thirty ninth reported case of LGBS in pregnancy in the literature and the first reported case from Black Africa. It is the third reported case of full recovery before delivery. The aetiology, diagnosis and management of LGBS is briefly reviewed.
