Özet

Background: Miller-Fisher syndrome (MFS) is characterized by gait ataxia, external ophtalmoplegia and areflexia and thought as an uncommon variant of Guillain Barre syndrome. Miller-Fisher syndrome is observed in about 5-8% of all Guillain Barre syndrome (GBS) cases. In MFS patients, spontaneous improvement was observed in the first 3 months and these improvements were started by the 2nd week.
