Abstract

Acute ophthalmoparesis that includes the oculomotor, trochlear, or abducens nerve may occur as an initial presentation of Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS). The symptoms of MFS or variant forms of Guillain-Barre syndrome are pathogenically related to anti-GQ1b antibodies. We report a case of a 36-year-old man with unilateral isolated abducens nerve palsy associated with anti-GM1 antibody. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of unilateral isolated abducens nerve palsy with positivity for anti-GM1 immunoglobulin M antibody.
