Purpose Of Review: Miller Fisher syndrome is a localized variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome, characterized by ophthalmoplegia, areflexia and ataxia. Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis is a related syndrome in which upper motor neurone features accompany the classic triad. Anti-GQ1b antibodies are uniquely found in both conditions and are believed to be pathogenic. Read More

An atypical case of Miller Fisher syndrome is described in a patient with ophthalmoplegia and mild ataxia but no areflexia. High titres of acute phase antibodies to gangliosides asialo-GM1 and GQ1b were detected. Asialo-GM1 antibodies have not been previously reported in association with Miller Fisher syndrome. Read More

Miller Fisher syndrome is a variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome, characterized by ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. The antiGQ1b immunoglobulin G antibody is a specific marker of Miller Fisher syndrome and related disorders, such as Guillain-Barré syndrome with ophthalmoplegia, atypical Miller Fisher syndrome characterized by acute ophthalmoplegia or acute ataxia and Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis. The antiGQ1b immunoglobulin G antibody may play some important roles in the pathogenesis of Miller Fisher syndrome and related disorders. Read More
