Abstract

We report a case of Guillain-Barré syndrome associated with an acute, disseminated toxoplasmosis due to a new and unknown zymodeme (zymodeme 12) in an immunocompetent patient. The patient's condition improved with pyrimethamine and sulfadiazine. Only the standard treatment for toxoplasmosis was effective, whereas intravenous immunoglobulins were ineffective.
