Guillain Barré syndrome (GBS),is an
autoimmune neurological disease. A patient with history
of GBSmay present as a challenge for the
anaesthesiologist, due to the possibility of impairment of
neuromuscular function and occurrence of respiratory
complications in the postoperative period.
Case report: We are reporting here the anaesthetic
management of a 29 year old female patientwith 8
months of amenorrhea with premature rupture of
membranes having history of Guillain Barre syndrome
posted for Emergency Caesarean section. We have
discussed here the intraoperative management and mode
of anaesthesia for such a patient.
Conclusion: Anaesthesiologist rarely may encounter
such patients in regular practice, so it is important to
understand the peculiarities of GBS to adequately
manage the patient in the perioperative period.
