Abstract:
Guillain-barre syndrome (GBS) following dengue infection is quite rare. This case report presents a patient with acute onset quadriparesis, bilateral facial nerve palsy and bulbar involvement associated with the dengue virus infection without any typical symptoms of dengue fever. Clinicians should always keep this association in mind when a patient presents with acute ascending weakness of limbs in the endemic areas even if the patient does not have symptoms suggestive of dengue, because a large number of dengue infections may be asymptomatic.
