Abstract

A patient with Guillain-Barré syndrome associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia following post-transfusional acute viral HBsAg-positive hepatitis improved dramatically and subsequently recovered from both diseases after plasmapheresis and steroid therapy. This case supports an autoimmune mechanism of Guillain-Barré syndrome.
