GUERRA, Carolina; URIBE, Carlos Santiago; GUERRA, Alejandro  e  HERNANDEZ, Olga H. Bickerstaff brain encephalitis: Case report and literature review. Biomédica [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.4, pp.513-518. ISSN 0120-4157.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7705/biomedica.v33i4.1438.

We describe the case of a 34-year-old male patient, who was referred to the Instituto Neurológico de Colombia with probable Guillain-Barré syndrome, requiring intensive care management. The presence of cognitive alterations during his evolution, lead the team to reconsider the initial diagnosis for the Bickerstaff´s brainstem encephalitis diagnosis. We aim to describe the patient´s treatment and evolution, as well as a brief review and discussion.

Palavras-chave : Encephalitis; immunoglobulins; syndrome.
