Guillian-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute immune-mediated polyradiculoneuropathy that is often related to a previous infectious exposure. GBS emerged as a potentially serious complication of covid 19 infection. Here we present a case of 64 years old female who presented to us with worsening respiratory failure and progressive flaccid symmetrical sensorimotor neuropathy following covid infection. She was diagnosed to have GBS as post covid complication . Hence started on Intravenous Immunoglobulin infusion following which she had improvement in respiratory failure and prevented from intubation and mechanical ventilation.
