CDC Split Type:

Write-up: 3 days after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination, the patient reported numbness in her bilateral toes that progressed to numbness and weakness of her bilateral legs. 5 days after the onset of her initial symptoms, the patient noted bilateral numbness in her fingers and her mouth, that also progressed to weakness in her bilateral arms. A few days later, the patient noticed a right-sided facial droop that brought her to the ED. Given the patient''s symptoms and elevated protein in the patient''s CSF (obtained via lumbar puncture), the patient''s symptoms are concerning for Guillain-Barre syndrome. The patient was started today on 5 days of immune globulin (PRIVIGEN) 10 % IV infusion 25 g.
