Abstract

Miller Fisher syndrome classically presents with ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. The syndrome may present rarely with atypical clinical features. Whether the central or peripheral nervous system is primarily involved remains controversial. Miller Fisher syndrome usually follows an infection, the most likely being Campylobacter jejuni. Mycoplasma pneumoniae has been reported rarely as the antecedent infectious agent in some patients.
