In Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and its variant, anti-GQ1b antibody has a pathogenic role for ophthalmoplegia. In addition, anti-GT1a antibody is related with lower cranial nerve involvement. This report describes a 60-year-old male patient with GBS manifesting with initially isolated dysphagia and subsequently developed ophthalmoplegia. Both immunoglobulin G type anti-GQ1b and anti-GT1a antibodies were detected in the patient’s serum. A mechanism regarding subsequent involvement of respective cranial nerves remains to be elucidated.
