We present a man with atypical involvement of the peripheral nervous system after influenza syndrome, during a classic epidemic period. This case is interesting for the atypical involvement of the XI and XII cranial nerves. It would seem to suggest that the involvement of the peripheral nervous system, after the influenza virus infection, might affect any anatomical tract, moreover our patient showed a satisfactory response to treatment with steroids.
