There is a diverse clinical spectrum of peripheral nervous system involvement in SjogrenęSQĽs syndrome (SS). Most of the peripheral neuropathies in SS are typically sensory. In this report, we present a case who showed signs similar to those of the Miller Fisher variant of Guillain Barre syndrome, associated with SS. The patient demonstrated a rapid improvement both clinically and electrophysiologically, after high dose intravenous immunoglobulin therapy.
