Abstract: 

We report a rare case that revealed severe myalgia as the chief complaint that is not mentioned in the list of frequent symptoms of Guillain Barre.
Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP). Required features for diagnosis of GBS are progressive motor weakness of more than one limb and are flexia. We report an 11-yearold boy who was referred to the emergency department with complaints of generalized body pain and gate problem.
It seems that if myalgias are the chief complaint and weakness is mentioned as a less important symptom, clinicians should consider GBS after ruling out other reasons for myalgia especially inflammatory myositis.
