The clinical presentation of acute vestibular syndrome with anti-GQ1b antibody

Takeaway

  • The acute vestibular syndrome (AVS) is a subtype of anti-GQ1b antibody syndrome.

Why this matters

  • Anti-GQ1b antibody syndrome encompasses several subtypes typically characterized by ophthalmoplegia including Miller Fisher syndrome, Guillain-Barre syndrome, acute ophthalmoparesis without ataxia, and Bickerstaff brainstem encephalitis. The study highlights a new disorder of anti-GQ1b antibody syndrome without ophthalmoplegia.
