Abstract

We describe the first case of Miller Fisher syndrome, a Guillain Barre variant, complicating systemic lupus erythematosus. The symptoms and signs mimicked a brainstem syndrome. Despite treatment with high dose gamma globulin, our patient worsened and required mechanical ventilation. After plasma exchange, the patient improved.
