Abstract

Miller Fisher syndrome is characterized by ataxia, ophthalmoplegia, and reduced or absent tendon reflexes. Generally, it is considered an acute postinfectious paralytic illness caused by a wide variety of infections including Campylobacter jejuni. The authors report the case of a 10-year-old girl with Miller Fisher syndrome who had a previous infection of Escherichia coli. If confirmed by other reports, this report could disclose a new association of Miller Fisher syndrome with E coli infection. © 2007 Sage Publications.
