ABSTRACT
There have been very few reports in the literature of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) after spinal surgery. We present a unique case of GBS following spinal fusion for thoracic vertebral fracture. The aim of this report is to illustrate the importance of early neurological assessment and determining the exact cause of a new neurological deficit that occurs after an operation.
Key Words: Guillain-Barre syndrome; Spinal surgery; Vertebral fracture
