SUMMARY: Miller Fisher syndrome, also known as Miller Fisher variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome, is an acute peripheral neuropathy that can develop after exposure to various viral, bacterial, and fungal pathogens. It is characterized by a triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia Miller Fisher syndrome: MRI findings. A 57-year-old man presented with new-onset diplopia. This progressed to complete ophthalmoplegia, facial diplegia, and ataxic gait. Examination demonstrated bilateral 3rd, 6th, and 7th cranial neuropathies, areflexia or hyporeflexia of all deep tendon reflexes, and gait ataxia Abstract Background: Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is a rare demyelinating condition which may have involvement of cranial nerves. There are a few case reports of optic pathway involvement in children. We describe 3 patients with optic pathway enhancement in pediatric patients with MFS Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is characterized by the clinical triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia (1), whereas its site of lesions, particularly of ataxia, is a matter of controversy (2 - 5) As a variant form of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), MFS is generally thought to result from peripheral neuropathy (3, 6 - 8) Miller Fisher syndrome is a rare acquired nerve disease considered to be a variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome. The main features are lack of muscle coordination (ataxia), eye muscle weakness resulting in the inability to move the eyes in several directions (ophthalmoplegia), and the absence of tendon reflexes
. Later, MFS was named after Charles Miller Fisher who reported it in 1956 as a limited variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) [A case of Miller Fisher syndrome with gadolinium-enhancing lesions in the cranial nerves and the cauda equina on magnetic resonance imaging].

Magnetic resonance imaging findings in Guillain-Barré syndrome caused by Zika virus infection The case of posterior column involvement in Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) reported by Inoue et al (1) is interesting and important. Although central nervous system involvement was reported in MFS, the posterior column lesion due to inflammatory pathogenesis is worthy of debate in terms of differential diagnosis on radiology and prognosis The authors have identified errors in references 7 and 33 in the references section of their article, 'Update: The Miller Fisher variants of Guillain-Barré syndrome,' which published in the November 2019 issue of Current Opinion in Ophthalmology . The correct references should read as follows Miller Fisher Syndrome (MFS) is a rare variant of GBS, observed in only about 1-5% of all cases of GBS in Western countries [2-4]. In other geographic regions such as Taiwan and Japan, the incidence is up to 19% and 25%, respectively. MFS presents with a clinical triad of ataxia, areflexia, and ophthalmoplegia [2,5]
According to a Medline search for Miller‐Fisher syndrome (MFS) in relation to COVID‐19, only two cases have been published as of 30 April 2020 . We present a new case of MFS in a patient following infection with SARS‐CoV‐2. Case description. The subject was a 51‐year‐old female with no personal or family history of interest.. Miller-Fisher syndrome (MFS) Miller-Fisher syndrome is characterized by the triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and areflexia. Symptoms usually progress over approximately one week. Initial diplopia. In 1956, Miller-Fisher reported 3 cases of another symptom plethora of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and hyporeflexia, which was called Miller-Fisher syndrome(MFS) in later reports. With more and more cases reported, more evidence indicates that BBE and MFS actually might be within the same disease spectrum Radiology of the eye and orbit. The prognosis of Miller Fisher syndrome was good--recovery occurred after a mean time period of 10.1 weeks. Residual symptoms were present in 74 cases (33.2%), and a recidivism of the Miller Fisher syndrome was reported in seven patients. Eight patients died
A combined presentation of Graves' disease and Miller-Fisher syndrome. In April, 2007, a 42-year-old woman was admitted to hospital with periorbital swelling, double vision, hyperosmia, and dizziness. Recent history included a gastrointestinal infection (February, 2007), bilateral ear pain, and a sore throat Abstract. We herein report a patient with Miller Fisher syndrome mimicking Tolosa-Hunt syndrome. A 47-year-old man presented with right orbital pain and diplopia. On a neurological examination, he had right oculomotor nerve palsy and diminished deep tendon reflexes. Brain magnetic resonance imaging failed to show any parenchymal lesions. This has been shown to be effective in animal models of Miller-Fisher syndrome [ 138, 139] and to be safe in humans. [ 140, 141, 142] The Japanese Eculizumab Trial for GBS (JET-GBS), a prospective.

When Charles Miller Fisher, MD, died on April 14, 2012, the field of neurology lost one of its 20th century giants. Fisher was born one of 9 children in 1913 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. In 1938, he graduated from the University of Toronto Medical School, soon after marrying his life's love, Doris In 1967, Miller Fisher described a pattern of ophthalmoplegia in patients with various pontine lesions, known as one-and-a-half syndrome (OAHS). In this syndrome, patients present with a combination of an ipsilateral conjugate horizontal gaze palsy (referring to the 'one' horizontal gaze palsy) and an ipsilateral internuclear ophthalmoplegia (INO) (referring to the 'half' of a. Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) is a rare variant of GBS and manifests as a descending paralysis, proceeding in the reverse order of the more common pattern of GBS. ~ 40% of patients are seropositive for Campylobacter jejuni. Diagnosis is solely based on clinical grounds, lumbar puncture and electrophysiologic crtieria . MFS may present in incomplete form as acute ophthalmoplegia or acute ataxic neuropathy. Bickerstaff brainstem encephalitis, which presents with hypersomnolence, ophthalmoplegia, and ataxia, is a central nervous system subtype of MFS

Guillain-Barre syndrome is a rare autoimmune acute polyradiculoneuropathy, usually following an infection or other immune-stimulating event and presenting with bilateral weakness in the distal lower limbs, that progresses over days-to-weeks to potentially life-threatening severity requiring mechanical ventilation before plateauing for up to several months and then improving 1,
Twenty years later, Miller Fisher described the syndrome that later took on his name and that had a presentation similar to the diencephalic form described by Guillain. Meanwhile, Bickerstaff presented a syndrome similar to polyradiculoneuropathy with perturbed consciousness. Diagnostic criteria were proposed in 1978 Miller Fisher Syndrome (3% of cases) Anti-ganglioside antibodies (GQ1b, GD3, GT1a) Bilateral Ophthalmoplegia, Ataxia and areflexia; Facial or bulbar weakness (50% of cases) Trunk and extremity weakness (50% of cases) Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy (rarest) Autonomic symptoms (cardiovascular and visual) Sensory loss; Slow, often incomplete recover
Miller-Fisher syndrome is an important differential diagnosis in any case of bilateral sixth nerve palsies but should only be definitively diagnosed once tumors, infections, and other neurological diseases have been conclusively ruled out A subsequent publication from a group of researchers, which included Bickerstaff (Al‐Din et al., 1982), reported 18 other patients with 'brainstem encephalitis and the syndrome of Miller Fisher' and argued a central origin. All 18 patients had ophthalmoplegia and ataxia There are some reports on the association of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and PNS [2-6], but Miller-Fisher Syndrome (MFS) is extremely rare . Case Report The patient was an 11-year-old boy who was hospitalized in our emergency department with complaints of headache, left ptosis, diplopia and weakness that started within the previous two days
Guillain-Barré (Ghee-yan Bah-ray) Syndrome is an inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. GBS is characterized by the rapid onset of numbness, weakness, and often paralysis of the legs, arms, breathing muscles, and face. Paralysis is ascending, meaning that it travels up the limbs from fingers and toes. Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an umbrella term for acute immune-mediated polyneuropathies, but in the Western world AIDP is the most common form, so it's almost synonymous with GBS. Patients with AIDP have progressive weakness of the limbs over a few days to 28 days, symmetrical deficit, areflexia, absent or mild sensory disturbance. Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) occurs in some patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome. LFT results are elevated in up to one third of patients. CPK and ESR may be elevated with myopathies or systemic inflammatory conditions. Patients with the Miller-Fisher variant may have anti-GQ1b antibodies The Miller Fisher syndrome: review of the literature. Alkan, Ozlem, et al. Spinal MRI findings of guillain-barre syndrome.

Fig. 3.3 Comparison of origins and courses of oculomotor, trochlear, and abducens nerves. The oculomotor and trochlear nerves originate in the midbrain, whereas the abducens nerve originates in the lower pons. All three nerves ultimately exit the cranial base into the eye via the superior orbital fissure (see text for details) Guillain-Barré syndrome is a peripheral neuropathy that causes acute neuromuscular failure. Misdiagnosis is common and can be fatal because of the high frequency of respiratory failure, which contributes to the 10% mortality seen in prospective studies.1 Our understanding of the wide spectrum of the disease and its pathogenesis has increased enormously in recent years . The symptoms are a result of inflammation of the nerves leading to the upper body and the destruction of the fatty covering that protects the nerves (myelin sheath).Lewis Sumner syndrome is an acquired disorder.

There is an unclassified group of patients who have symptoms of both Miller-Fisher.
Also, in hospitalized patients, 51 of 108 (47%) examined patients had abnormalities at neuroimaging, most frequently infarcts and hemorrhages but also less commonly cerebral venous thrombosis, encephalopathy, posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and Miller-Fisher syndrome In April, 2007, a 42-year-old woman was admitted to hospital with periorbital swelling, double vision, hyperosmia, and dizziness. Recent history included a gastrointestinal infection (February, 2007), bilateral ear pain, and a sore throat. Systolic blood pressure was 150 mm Hg, heart rate was 80 beats per min, and temperature was 37·4°C. Laboratory tests showed a low concentration of thyroid.

Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis is a rare syndrome defined by the triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and decreased consciousness. It is considered to be a variant of Miller Fisher syndrome and Guillain-Barré syndrome but is differentiated from the two by the presence of central nervous system involvement, commonly in the form of impaired consciousness Guillain-Barré syndrome is an acute inflammatory polyradiculoneuropathy. Nearly half of patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome have cranial nerve involvement. However, isolated bilateral ptosis without ophthalmoplegia is a rare manifestation, and isolated unilateral ptosis without ophthalmoplegia in Guillain-Barré syndrome has not previously been reported in the literature
The anatomic location and pathogenesis of the ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, areflexia syndrome, which includes both the Miller-Fisher syndrome and Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis, continues to be a matter for debate. A patient with this syndrome is reported, and the brainstem location of the lesion and elevated titers of anti-GM1 antibodies in serum are demonstrated chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy, guillain-barre syndrome, guillain-barre syndrome and pregnancy, miller fisher syndrome, syndrome.
