The characteristic of the typical Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an ascending symmetrical and demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy. Acute motor and sensory axonal neuropathy (AMSAN) is a less common variant of GBS. Here, we describe an atypical AMSAN case developed after a beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection. Also, repeated electrophysiological test findings were discussed.
