Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Four patients had idiopathic acute polyradiculoneuritis (Guillain-Barré syndrome) with sensory ataxia as the most prominent symptom. Sensory ataxia remained as a residue even three to five years after onset, despite good recovery of muscle weakness in five to 14 months. Sural nerve biopsy specimens disclosed a severe loss of large myelinated fibers and a high incidence of active axonal degeneration.
