Acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) is a clinical syndrome characterized by rapid onset of weakness that frequently includes respiratory and bulbar weakness. An accurate and early diagnosis of the cause has important bearing on the management and prognosis. Guillian Barre Syndrome (GBS) is a post infectious polyradiculoneuropathy involving mainly motor but sometimes sensory and autonomic nerves.
