A 68-year-old woman and a 72-year-old man presented with distal weakness of the limbs and numbness following an influenza vaccination within 2 weeks. Moreover, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) was diagnosed in two patients. Pericarditis was diagnosed in the first patient who also had precordial chest pain with referral to trapezius ridge, and nephrotic syndrome, was observed in the second patient who had leg edema and proteinuria. The relationship among GBS, pericarditis and nephrotic syndrome after an influenza vaccination is discussed.
