Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy of the peripheral nervous system. Involvement of the dorsal root ganglia and the medulla spinalis in GBS is rare, especially in an axonal form. Herein, we report the case of a 53-year-old woman with classic GBS and involvement of the T8-L1 dorsal root segments. Dorsal root and spinal involvement should be kept in mind in all types of GBS when patients present with segmental or dermatomal sensory impairment.

Keywords: Demyelinating polyneuropathy, dorsal root involvement; Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Guillain-Barré sendromu (GBS) periferik sinir sisteminin akut inflamatuar poliradikülonöropatisi olarak tanımlanır. GBS tablosunda arka köklerin ve medulla spinalisin tutulumu özellikle aksonal formlarda görülen nadir olarak tanımlanmış bir durumdur. Bu makalede klasik GBS ile birlikte T8-L1 spinal segmentlerinde arka kök tutulumu olan bir olgu sunuldu. Bu olgu segmental veya dermatomal duyu kusuru gösteren tüm GBS formlarında arka kök ve spinal tutulumun mutlaka akılda tutulması gerektiğini göstermektedir.
