69 Possible Causes for Gaze-Evoked Nystagmus, Guillain-Barré Syndrome

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    Gaze-evoked nystagmus is common. All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[doi.org] syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lumbar puncture and cerebrospinal fluid analysis may be helpful in the diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome and chronic inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polyneuropathy

    Early ocular signs are gaze-evoked horizontal nystagmus and defective ocular pursuit movements with the full range of extraocular movements.[disorders.eyes.arizona.edu] Postinfective polyneuritis - eg, Guillain-Barré syndrome. Sarcoidosis.[patient.info] Howard Current Opinion in Neurology. 2016; 29(5): 592 17 Short-Term Prognosis of Mechanically Ventilated Patients With GuillainBarré Syndrome Is Worsened by Corticosteroids[doi.org]

  • Neuropathy

    Gaze-evoked nystagmus is common. All patients have gait ataxia and the majority have lower limb ataxia.[doi.org] Unfortunately, none of these tests can diagnose Guillain-Barré syndrome.[medbroadcast.com] […] motor sensory neuropathy – genetic conditions that cause nerve damage, particularly in the feet having high levels of toxins in your body, such as arsenic, lead or mercury Guillain-Barré[nhs.uk]

  • Bickerstaff Brainstem Encephalitis

    They showed general weakness, severe ataxia, bilateral dysmetria and bilateral lateral gaze limitation. And gaze-evoked nystagmus was observed in one of them.[e-rvs.org] Patients with overlapping Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), and the Bickerstaff brainstem encephalitis (BBE) have rarely been reported, and the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was upbeating nystagmus on upward gaze, and bilateral horizontal gazeevoked nystagmus. His pupils were dilated and light reflexes were absent.[doi.org]

  • Miller-Fisher Syndrome

    Initial examination revealed nystagmus evoked by a bilateral horizontal gaze with left side dysmetria.[jkna.org] KEYWORDS: Guillain-Barré syndrome; Miller Fisher syndrome; Pharyngeal–cervical–brachial weakness; Reversible conduction failure[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Several reports document nystagmus, including gaze-evoked (6, 10, 14) dissociated abducting (6, 10, 13), convergence-retraction (10), rebound (13) and upbeat lid nystagmus[neuroophthalmology.ca]

  • Ophthalmoplegia

    In addition, other findings such as vertical gaze evoked nystagmus (most commonly on supraduction) can be seen.[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu] Recognition of this rare clinical presentation can help avoid misdiagnosis as Guillain-Barré syndrome or its ocular variant, namely Miller Fisher Syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is an acute polyradiculoneuritis regarded as an uncommon clinical variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
