Guillain barre syndrome is a autoimmune disease and acute idiopathic polyneuritis condition. Which is considered as Monophasic Immune Mediated Disorder (MIMD) and as acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy in peripheral nervous system. About 1-3 people effected in100,000 population. AMAN & AMSAN are rare subtypes of Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). The accurate cause of this disease is unknown. Around 2-12% people die due to GBS fallowed by respiratory paralysis. Generally Immunoglobulins and Plasmapheresis given as effective treatment and considered as standard therapy in this disease. Here we find a case of 18 years male patient presented with complaints of generalised weakness since 10days and ascending paralysis fallowed by descending paralysis since one day. Based on family history and nerve conduction studies, it was concluded with AMSAN type of GBS. In order to treat the condition Steroids, Nutrition Therapy and Physiotherapy were given to the patient. This combinational therapy has worked effectively in this patient and helped for faster recovery.
