Scrub infection is an important differential of undifferentiated febrile illness in the subtropical and tropical countries. Neurological complications of scrub infection have a varied spectrum of presentation involving both the central nervous system, among which meningitis and meningoencephalitis are the most common presentations. The peripheral nervous system manifestations include Guillain–Barre syndrome (GBS) is not commonly reported. The coexistence of both central and peripheral involvement is rare, and we would like to report a case of a patient who was diagnosed with scrub infection and presented with meningoencephalitis and later developed GBS in the course of the disease on treatment for scrub infection.
